Pumpkin Bread and Marshmallows



I am still continuing my bake sale frenzy and now I have pumpkin bread baked in loaves, packaged and my house smells wonderful! Now all I need is some cream cheese to spread on a slice!


Pumpkin Bread

3 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour

1 1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp nutmeg

3/4 Cup water

4 eggs

1 Cup oil

3/4 Cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

1 tsp cinnamon

3 Cups sugar

2 cups pumpkin puree


Mix all of the ingredients together...I just throw them all into a mixing bowl at one time..and pour into well greased and floured loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, until toothpick comes out clean.


This makes 2 regular loaves.




Next, I have marshmallows, I have made these before and the recipe that I use is from the very talented Tartlette. This recipe has not failed me yet. After making and eating homemade marshmallows, I cannot bring myself to buy another bag of these. You can find the recipe here.

I too have pumpkin loaves! Mine are now in the freezer along with banana bread. It makes the whole house smell cinnamon-y.

P.S. The marshmallows look sooo good.[drool]

I'm actually making marshmallows as a gift this Christmas. I'll have to compare the recipe I clipped to yours!!

Ooh, I have to make marshmallows in December! I'm debating between toasted coconut and peppermint. I do know that half will be made plain, though I have a feeling I won't be getting to it until January... Oh well, ample opportunities do drink hot chocolate/cocoa then!

Your marshmallows looks wonderful, by the way! Very fluffy and just awesome.
