Try Pumpkin Treats This Halloween

As Halloween approaches, pumpkins seem to appear everywhere. From our neighbor's front porches to our local Safeway and pumpkins abound. So, why not invest in some pumpkins of your own, carve a jack-o-latern and bake some pumpkin-y treats? Try out one of our recipes and share your own in the comments.

Pumpkin Bread:

  • 3 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 cups sugar - a little less
  • 1 cup oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cups water
  • 15 oz. pumpkin

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients. Beat and mix until smooth. Pour batter into 2 greased and floured loaf pans. Bake about 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Enjoy!
