As the fall leaves change color,
we realize that the holidays are a great time to bake and include the kids, and
… we begin to feel “hygge”.
Hygge (pronounced hue-guh not hoo-gah) is the Danish word for feeling cozy and content. One thing that helps us feel cozy is sharing (with ourselves… or others – if you’re really generous) some warm pumpkin bread.
So, here’s a recipe that goes right along with all that hygge…
2 1/2 cups of flour
2 1/4 cups of sugar
1 can pumpkin ( 1yoz)
3/4 canola oil
1 Tbs ground cinnamon
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbs baking soda
if desired – 3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecan
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Directions ~ Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs, pumpkin, oil and water together.
Sift dry ingredients together. Fold into pumpkin mixture. Add nuts or chocolate chips.
Pour into 2 well greased and floured loaf pans. Bake for approximately 50 min…or until
it tests done. Let cool.
