OK, a couple folks were asking Rick for the pumpkin bread recipe on Facebook. We were hoping to find the link to it online, but I'll just copy from the printout. This is originally from allrecipes.com circa 2002 and posted by user "v monte" (I hope this mention clears me of any copyright issues :) ).
Here goes - this recipe makes 3 loaves. We usually do a 1/3 batch. I'll put the 1/3 quantities in parentheses next to the original amounts for those of you who are not math majors.
3 1/4 c. (1 c. + 1 TBSP) flour - we like spelt and whole wheat
2 tsp (2/3 tsp) baking soda
1 tsp (1/3 tsp) ground nutmeg
2 c. (2/3 c.) solid pack pumkin puree
1 c. (1/3 c.) vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp (1/2 tsp) salt
1 tsp (1/3 tsp) ground cinnamon
3 c. (1 c.) white sugar
2/3 c. (1/4 c.) water
4 (1) eggs
1/2 c. (1/6 c.) chopped walnuts or raisins (optional)
1. Grease and flour one 7x3 inch pan per loaf. Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C).
2. Measure flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and spices in large bowl. Stir to blend. Add pumpkin, water, oil, eggs and nuts or raisins. Beat unti well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.
3. Bake approximately 1 hour (use the old toothpick in the middle trick to tell if they are done).
