Old Fashioned Pumpkin Bread

This is by far the best pumpkin bread recipe I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. It was passed to me by my aunt who said it was her great-grandmother’s recipe. I also use this recipe for my Pumpkin Cookies, only I alter it some. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. 🙂
Cook time: 55 Min Prep time: 15 Min Serves: 6-8

1 can(s) 100% pure pumpkin, 15 oz can (use whole can)
3 c sugar
3 eggs
1 c vegetable oil
3 c all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground clove
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1 c ground pecans **add pecans in last after batter is mixed**

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a mixer, combine all wet ingredients and sugar, mixing only until they are well incorporated.
2. Now combine the remaining dry ingredients (except pecans) in a separate bowl.
3. Then using a measuring cup or large spoon, slowly add in scoops of dry ingredients mixing well between each addition, do not over mix batter.
4. Once dry ingredients are mixed in well, add in pecans being sure to mix them in evenly.
5. Grease and flour 2 bread pans.
6. Fill pans halfway with batter.
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 – 60 minutes.
8. **Note: This recipe originally calls for it to be baked in 3 (1 lb) coffee cans. But since they no longer make the metal coffee cans you can use the bread pans. If you do happen to find the coffee cans, then by all means use them. It gives the bread a really nice design.**
