In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water, vanilla and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pumpkin spice and ginger. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until blended.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, you know the loaves are done when a toothpick is inserted and it comes out clean.

Let cool on a drying rack and sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top, YUMMY!

Delicious Homemade Pumpkin Bread

I made this for them yesterday and I will be shocked if there is any left for when Dad get’s home from his business trip tomorrow.   I may have to set aside a little secret stash for him.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
