Ingredients

  • 1 ½ Cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 ⅔ Cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • ¾ tsp Salt
  • 1 ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg Freshly Ground (1 1/2 if preground)

  • ½ tsp Allspice

  • Preheat oven to 325

  • Using a greased medium loaf ban, bake for appx 80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean
  • Let cool on a rack, then remove from loaf pan
  • Cut down the middle of the loaf and then into slices
  • I have tried adding a glaze to this and also cream cheese frosting. Both of them work very well, try them out and see what you like best.
  • I have also tried using fresh pumpkin for this recipe, but didn't find it to be any better than using canned. It just took a lot more work.
  • Taking a picture in poor lighting conditions optional

Notes

I should note that I have taken to doubling this recipe. For two reasons: one, that they go fast. Two, that cans of pumpkin (which you're probably going to use) generally come in 15 oz size (just shy of 2 Cups). If you do, you'll have to adjust the time on the bake accordingly, usually about 10 minutes or so.
Update: I have also taken do baking them in mini loaves. They last longer, there's more to give away, and they freeze well!
