Pumpkin Bread

Operation clean out the pantry continues around here so I decided to make some Pumpkin bread to take to a friends house tonight along with a Caprese salad, and some cinnamon honey butter.I used up all of my granulated cane juice, so I wasn't able to make a topping for this bread, I am including a topping if you have the sugar available. Also I made these mini cakes and a loaf.

What you need
1 can pumpkin puree (15 oz)
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
3 cups sugar (I didn't have 3 cups I had maybe 2 1/2)
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
nutmeg- I don't know how much I used I just grated some in there
1 teaspoon or maybe 3/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger


Topping-
mix together
melted butter
sugar
cinnamon
when your bread is done poke holes in it with a skewer and drizzle this on top.


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix together your pumpkin...
