Pumpkin Bread Made in a Coffee Can?

Yes, you really can make Pumpkin Bread in a Coffee Can...

My Mother started making these unique "loaves' years ago and gave them away to everyone all during the Holidays. I don't know where she found the recipe but our whole family uses it now and we kept the tradition of giving it away to all our friends from right after Halloween all the way through Christmas.

Enjoy this wonderful Pumpkin Bread made from your leftover Halloween Pumpkin and all the Coffee cans in your cabinet you didn't throw away. How cool is that?

Don't worry, if you don't have natural Pumpkins, you can used canned Pumpkin, and if you don't have Coffee cans you can use baking pans. See cooks notes below.

2 cups of cooked prepared Pumpkin
or 1 large can Pumpkin, drained
3 cups Sugar
1 cup Canola or Rapeseed
or extra light Virgin Olive Oil
3 Eggs
3 cups Flour
1 cup Raisins
1 cup chopped Nuts (optional)
1 tsp each of
Baking Powder
Baking Soda
2 tsp Cinnamon

For Your Coffee Can Pumpkin Bread

If you are using leftover or fresh Pumpkins, prepare them first.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease and flour three (13 oz.) Coffee cans (or two standard bread pans).

In a large bowl, mix Suger and Oil and add Eggs one at a time. 
Set this mixture aside.

Sift Flour and all Spices together.
Add Flour mixture and Pumpkin alternately to the Sugar/Oil mixture. Mix just enough to moisten all the dry ingredients; It’s better 
if you don’t overbeat. 

Lastly, add Raisins and Nuts. (I think it tastes better without Nuts and many people are allergic to Nuts, so I leave them out.)

Pour mixture into the 3 Coffee cans or the 2 loaf pans. Stir a bit when mixture is in the cans to avoid air bubbles.

Cover loosely with foil.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes.

Cool for 10 minutes before loosening from cans or pans.

Serve with Coffee and/or Ice Cream or Whipped Cream.

Makes about 24 slices. Enjoy!

Help! What if I Don't Have Coffee Cans?
Loaf Pans Work for Coffee Can Pumpkin Bread Too!

You can still bake it in several loaf pans; it just won't be round and that's ok. Squares are good too!

Below are some baking dish choices handpicked with this recipe in mind. Just cut down the center and across from side to side. You will have little squares instead of circles. Enjoy!
