Okay! It's time to start off with the pumpkin recipes. Don't forget, if you want to contribute a pumpkin recipe, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Soups were certainly popular, but as you know, it's October which means it's time to start up the baking. What better way than this quick pumpkin bread? The friend who gave me this recipe originally likes to pitch in some chocolate chips. Pumpkin/chocolate isn't necessarily my thing, but lots of people are into it. If you're one of them, give it a whirl!
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin (or 1 small can)
5/8 cup vegetable or canola oil
In large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. In another bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, pumpkin, and oil. Stir into dry ingredients until moistened.
Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack.
