Why not do a 'search' from the bar at the top of this page? If you key in 'pumpkin' you will find literally scores of threads about pumpkin.

I love this recipe

I love this recipe. I haven't made it in 4 years. I want to make it every year but always end up not having enough time. It comes from my friend's mother who lives in Massachusetts. The recipe written down here is how she gave it to me. You may want to mix the dry ingredients separately. Hopefully this year I'll get around to making it.

-Preheat oven to 350 for 2 pans, (325 for glass)
-Soak 1 Cup of raisins in a bowl of water, optional
-Beat 4 eggs well and then add,
2 cups of fresh pumpkin or a 15-oz can of pumpkin
1 cup of vegetable oil
2/3 cup of orange juice. If using canned pumpkin, increase orange juice to 1 cup.

3 1/2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
1 1/2 heaping teaspoons of cinnamon
1 heaping teaspoon of nutmeg
1 heaping teaspoon of ground clover
3 cups of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla

-Mix well, then add
1 cup of walnuts, chopped fine. optional
1 cup of raisins, drained and coated with flour. Mix in carefully

-Pour in a well greased and floured pan.
-Cook for 1 hour and test with a fork. If it comes out clean, it's done

I know those "problems".... I´m also ever searching for "new" recipes on each type...

Ok... Here´s a German Recipe with Pumpkin



200 g sugar ( I think you as american need sure more sugar ..perhaps 300 g..)
250 g butter (room temperature)
5 eggs
200 ml milk
350 g flour
150 g almandes (75 g grounded, 75 g hoed)
1 package bakingpowder ( here it´s 15 g)
400 g finde grated pumpkin ( or Zucchini or carrots)

Stear all together for a smoothy dough. Than put it on a butterd baking pan and bake it in the oven ( 180°C) for 30-40 minutes.

At the top you can make a topping with sugar and water oder an american topping.

greetings from western Germany

Love your life, than the life loves you

I hope I don't get myself in trouble (again) here, but this was published in a newspaper a couple years ago and it's become a family (and neighborhood) favorite!!

* Exported from MasterCook *
Glazed Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf
Makes two loaves

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 1/3 cups flour
3 cups granulated sugar
2 tsps. baking soda
1 tsp. each: cinnamon -- nutmeg, salt
4 eggs -- lightly beaten
2 cups canned pure pumpkin
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup chopped nuts
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate -- melted, cooled
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar -- sifted
4 Tbsps. cold water -- (4 to 6)
1 ounce semi-sweet chocolate -- melted, cooled
2 tsps. hot water -- (2 to 4)

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl; set aside. Whisk together eggs, pumpkin, oil and water in a medium bowl. Stir into the flour mixture; mix just until blended. Fold in the nuts.

2. Transfer 2 cups of the batter to a small bowl, stir in the melted chocolate. Spoon half of the remaining plain batter into the two greased and floured 9-by-5-inch loaf pans; spoon half the chocolate batter over the top of each pan. Spoon remaining plain batter evenly over the chocolate batter in each pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and dry, about 1 hour, 10 minutes. Cool in pans on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan to cool completely on wire rack.

3. For glaze, mix confectioners' sugar and cold water in a small bowl until the right drizzling consistency. Transfer half of the mixture to a separate bowl. Stir in chocolate and enough of the hot water to make the right consistency for drizzling. Drizzle white and chocolate glazes in a zigzag pattern on each loaf.
