Pumpkin Bread:

You can use canned pumpkin and it is tidy-- or you can bake your own, store in in pint jars in the freezer, and haul it out when you need it. This makes two loaves: one for now and one for the freezer.

3 1/3 c flour-- half whole wheat
2 t BS
1/2 t BP
1 1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg and cloves

2/3 c oil
2 c pumpkin
4 eggs
2 c sugar
2/3 c milk

raisins, nuts, chocolate chips, apples...whatever is around

Mix dry together. Mix wet together. Mix the two. Bake in a 350 degree oven.
