okay so Ami asked for the recipe, and so, here it is. IDK how well it'll turn out since I've been the only person in the family to ever recreate the bread to taste exactly like my mother's, but if you follow my instructions correctly you should be fine.

Sharon's Pumpkin Bread

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 can One Pie pumpkin (ALWAYS USE THE ONE PIE. THE LIBBY'S AND ALL OTHER BRANDS TASTE WRONG)
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon

Beat the eggs. Add sugar and vegetable oil, mix well with hand mixer. sift dry ingredients (flour, salt, salt, baking soda, cinnamon. make sure the cinnamon is looking well-distributed throughout the mix) add dry ingredients to mix, a little at a time while mixing with the mixer. I like to fold the batter around the flour to try and cut down on the spray. Add pumpkin and blend well. The color you should get should be just slightly orange. if it's too orange or too tan you're doin it wrong.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. put bread into a greased/floured pan, and bake for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes check it with a knife, if it still comes out gooey, keep baking in five minute intervals until it comes out clean. The bread when it's done should be a really nice orange-brown color.


I'd include pictures but I'm lazy. The end result though should be a really moist fluffy bread which is om nom nom good. My stepmom likes to eat it with cream cheese, and you can also make a cream cheese frosting with it which tastes good, too.

far as I know pretty much any supermarket carries it.

I'll have to keep an eye out for it then! I haven't ever seen it... though by the same token I've never had a reason to look, either.

the label looks like this. A lot of the times during thanksgiving grocery stores will put out displays of it, but otherwise you can find it in the baking section.
