Your FAVOURITE recipe!

I make pumpkin bread for the community around Halloween time and it's my FAVOURITE recipe. It's easy, easy to handle if you don't bake very much.
My friends and family all seem to like it and I thought I might share it!
Be sure to share your FAVOURITE recipes too!

Combine 3-1/2 cups of all purpose flour, 3 cups of sugar, 2 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp, salt, 2 tsp ground allspice, 1 tsp ground nutmeg, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground cloves in a large bowl.

Next, whisk 4 eggs, 1 can of pumpkin, 3/4 cup canola oil and 2/3 cups of water.

Stir it into the dry ingredients and mix well.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Cool for about ten to fifteen minutes before moving it to the cooling rack.

It usually turns out really moist and its a yummy recipe so try it out!
Happy baking! Happy

I must admit I seldom follow a recipe!
I am more a veg person than baking. I love casseroles and fish dishes.

Generally I adapt as I go along with whatever ingredients I feel will work at the time - A variation of fresh veg dependent on price and availability. I keep a good stock of herbs and spices and grow herbs in the garden.

As such I do not really have a favourite recipe - just love to experiment!

I have a favourite recipe but it's a secret sorry! Haha, A few years ago now I followed a Nigella Lawson recipe for mini Christmas Pud truffles. They looked amazing but I didn't really like the texture of them or how they tasted. So I tinkered with the ingredients - swapping this for that and found that I cracked it a few years later. They still look good and now I love the taste too, my family also seem to approve. I think the only things still the same as NIgella's recipe is the way they're decorated, and there's chocolate in them! The secret is that they taste very much like Christmas pudding, without having any Christmas pudding in them! I may share my secret one day, but not today! Here's Nigella's version for you though, see what you think - http://www.styleathome.com/food-and-entertaining/recipes/recipe-nigella-s-christmas-puddini-bonbons/a/18992 (the picture is of mine)
