Getting Pumped for Thanksgiving

Wasn’t it just summer?  How is it possible that it’s Thanksgiving?

But it is; which means it’s time for a very rare occurrence in my world:  one of the few traditions on my blog; even more rare,  a recipe.

Most rare is that I’m cooking at all.   Which I did, last night.

 Making this means you’ll not only give thanks, but get thanks.



Blend in one large bowl:

3 eggs beaten

2 cups canned pumpkin

1 ½ c. white sugar

1 ½ c. brown sugar

1 c. oil

3 c. flour

1 tsp. nutmeg (If I’m missing any spices, I skip it; it still tastes great)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp. ground cloves

1 tsp . ginger

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

Grease and flour 2 loaf pans

(I double the recipe and use 3 loaf pans)

Mix ingredients well to be sure there aren’t too many lumps of flour.

Bake at 350 for an hour to  75 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Gobble, gobble.  

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  

There’s so much to be thankful for.
