This bread is so moist I often serve it as a cake. You need either two glass (not metal) bread pans, or one bundt pan. Glass bread pans work best for bread to slice--metal somehow effects the cooking time when I do loaves--or I have a metal bundt pan that I use for a cake. Grease whatever pan you're using.and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Meme's Pumpkin Bread
2/3 cup butter flavor crisco 3 cups sugar 4 eggs (3 if jumbo) 1 can of One Pie Pumpkin (or any canned pumpkin) 3 1/2 cups flour 1/2 tsp baking powder 2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp cinammon 1 tsp nutmeg 1 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup walnut pieces (small, not fine) 2/3 cup water 1 tsp vanilla
Start by creaming together the crisco and sugar in a LARGE bowl. Add the eggs, mixing in one at a time, then the pumpkin and vanilla. Mix well.
In a separate large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together except for the walnuts. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet until well blended, adding the water in increments. Depending on your humidity and/or locale, you may not need all of the water. Add at least half of it, though. Finally, add the walnuts and pour into the pans.
Bake for one hour. The tops of the loaves may be moist so if it takes another ten minutes don't worry. When I serve this as a bundt cake, I cut the top so it's level and flop it on the serving plate, then sprinkle a lot of maple sugar on top while it's still steaming hot, so it dissolves into the cake, then crystallizes again. . It makes a great dessert any way you serve it.
