I posted this years ago, but there are a lot of new people now. Since I couldn’t shop this year, I’ve made tons of it, it always goes over well and is demanded next year. It is very heavy and dense, more a loaf cake than a bread. Sorry this is late!

4 cups flour
3 cups sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 can pumpkin puree
1 cup cooking oil
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs
2/3 cup COLD water
2-3 tablespoons milk
1 cup raisins and/or nuts (optional)
Combine all dry ingredients in large mixing bowl, blend well, and make a pit in the middle of the mixture. Pour in the cooking oil, water, applesauce, honey, can of pumpkin, vanilla and milk, blending well after each addition. Now add the eggs one at a time, blending well after each. Pour batter into 3 greased large loaf pans (or 7 small ones). Fill each pan roughly half way. Bake at 350* for approximately 1 hour large pans (30 minutes small), or until a broomstick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
NOTE: after about 10-15 minutes baking time, cover pans with tented sheets of tinfoil to help prevent overbrowning of the surface.December 24, 2014 at 1:58 am #923407
Looks good! Did you mean a broomstraw for testing whether the loaves are done?December 24, 2014 at 2:22 am #923408

This looks delicious…I’ll have to try it. One question: what size can of pumpkin puree? How many ounces?
Thanks for the recipe 🙂December 24, 2014 at 3:48 pm #923430
Erm, yeah, sorry, bad spelling here…
It is a broomstraw not stick lol, though I often use a twig from the golden rain tree outside- long, straight, and to a point. I’ve used hay straws also.
It’s the regular sized cans of puree; about a pound? Like a can of soup. I do use the huge cans when I’m making a double batch at once, it works out just right.
Sometimes I need to mix up the loaf sizes; it’s one large loaf pan with 5 small ones, I’ve never done it with 2 large but it would probably be 2 and 2.February 27, 2015 at 10:48 pm #926238
This looks really good! I’ll have to make this for Christmas gifts or such this year 🙂February 27, 2015 at 11:32 pm #926239
