Introduction: Pumpkin Bread Recipe

About: I like to make things for the internets. I also sell a pretty cool calendar at You'll like it.
Pumpkin bread is a great holiday treat and very easy to make. You don't even need a blender for it. You can make it in a couple of 9x5 bread pans or split it up into muffins or the wax paper mini-loaf holders.

For a quick and easy baking fix this one will be just right.

Bowl 1
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
