Jack.

Jack, the Jack O'Lantern was given to me by a friend oh, at least five years ago. Maybe even longer.

And some of the kids in our house believe that Jack wakes up and dances at night.

We love to play along, of course.

This morning, H, let out the greatest laugh when he woke up to find Jack sitting here.

And of course, that's a Halloween piano book he's playing from. I'm not sure how we all slept through his piano playing last night, but we did.

I'm posting my pumpkin bread recipe because so many people in my life love it and so many people have been asking lately for it. It's really the best pumpkin bread you'll ever eat. Maybe you've got a fall recipe to share...like pumpkin bars? I've been hearing about a yummy pumpkin bar dessert I'd love to try??? If you've got a fun, fall recipe leave it here in the comments or email me.

Pumpkin Bread

4 eggs
1 cup sugar
¼ cup lt. brown sugar
½ tsp. vanilla
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ Tsp. baking powder
½ tsp salt

1 cup canned pumpkin
¾ cup oil

Ground cinnamon. {I do not measure}

350 degree oven. Beat Eggs, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla in large bowl.
Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and then add to the large bowl mixture. Mix well.
Add pumpkin and oil and mix well. Add ground cinnamon. I just pour until all of the orange/brown batter is speckled with cinnamon. Add as you see fit! Pour batter into greased loaf pan. {I usually can do one large and one small loaf} Bake 60 minutes. Tops of the bread should be firm and if you were to insert a toothpick, it would come out clean.

Store in aluminum foil for maximum moistness. I am not sure how long it lasts quality-wise, because in our house it's always eaten within two days.

I may just try your pumpkin bread. I made some last weekend.

Love you all Auntie Laurie

Your pumpkin bread sounds delicious!

I'll try and get a recipe that my mom makes - Flaky Apple Pie Bars - they're a shortcut to having apple pie if you're short on time and just as yummy!

Have you ever made the pumpkin bread into muffins? Just curious how the baking time would change.
