Sugar-n-Spice Pumpkin Bread

This bread is delicious and one of our families’ favorites. It works well as a muffin, freezes well (4-6 weeks max) and makes 5 medium loaves or two large regular loaves.

4 eggs slightly beaten
3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups canned pumpkin
2 TBLS pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour (whole wheat is yummy also)
2 cups chopped cranberries (optional)

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup finely chopped nuts (optional) pecans or walnuts work best

Mix ingredients together in small bowl with a fork – set aside.

1. Spray bread pans with non stick spray
2. Mix first 4 ingredients until blended
3. Stir in all dry ingredients plus cranberries if you are using them until well combined
4. Pour into greased pans
5. sprinkle Topping over bread
6. Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out “clean”
7. Remove bread from pans and cool on cooling rack
