I just made this loaf and while the beautiful aroma wafts into my office, I am going to share it with you.
This makes 3 loaves (1 to eat now, 2 to freeze for later)
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 (15 oz) can PURE pumpkin (not pie filling)
- 1 cup Crisco Oil
- 2/3 cup water
- 4 eggs
- 3 1/2 cups flour, sifted
- 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. ground nutmeg
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup pecans (or Skor chips)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 3 loaf pans (9 x 5 inch).
In a large bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, oil, and water. Beat until smooth.
Add flour, soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Fold in the chips and pecans.
Bake for one hour and cool a few minutes. Ice and then sprinkle on toasted and crushed pecans.
This is SCRUMPTIOUS to say the least.
