Holiday Recipes

Thought about this for a while and decide to share some of my favorite recipes for the Holiday season.

Pumpkin Bread (Found in Cooking Collectibles - From friends of the Greater Houston Unit of the American Cancer Society)

3 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsps. soda
2 tsps. each nutmeg, cloves, allspice and cinnamon
4 eggs1 (20-oz.) can pumpkin
1 cup oil1 cup raisins
1 cup walnuts or pecans

Sift dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. This should include the spices. (Note - you don't like a particular spice leave it out) Add oil, eggs, pumpkin and raisins soaked in the water. Blend all well and then stir in the nuts.

Grease two a 9x5x3 loaf pans (Note I've also made this in a all type of pans just adjust cooking time) with shortening and sprinkle with flour. Divide dough in two pans and bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes.

Great to serve for breakfast.
