Mrs Stroller’s Pumpkin Bread

This recipe was first given to my family by my kindergarten teacher…..long, long ago. This recipe had been passed along to her by her family, who lived on a plantation in the South. My family loves to pull this out come fall when pumpkins are readily available. It makes a great teacher’s gift…and freezes well for those times when you need something quick to pull out for unexpected company. Enjoy!

Heat oven to 350
Butter and sugar 2 bread pans.  I find the granulated sugar adds a nice crunch to the outside of the bread.

3c flour
2c sugar
1c chopped pecans
1t salt
2c pumpkin mashed
1t soda
1 1/4 cup shortening liquid
3t cinnamon
4 eggs beaten

Sift dry ingredients then add pecans. Adding pecans to the dry ingredients will give a coating that will keep the pecans from sinking. Mix in wet ingredients and stir well. Fill pans half-full and bake for one hour–toothpick should come out clean. If you are using them for gifts, one batch will make 6 mini loafs. If you are looking for a gift idea, saran wrap loaves and wrap with a kitchen towel and secure it with your favorite ribbon.
