Pumpkin Bread


  • 1 1/2 cups melted butter
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups mashed pumpkin
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. each soda, cinnamon and nutmeg
  • Ad
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • chopped nuts (opt.)
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tsp. orange juice
  • 1 tsp. grated orange rind


Cream 1 cup butter and sugar together in bowl. Beat in 4 eggs and pumpkin. Sift next 5 dry ingredients into batter, mixing well. Add 3/4 cup water, vanilla and nuts, mixing well. Pour into2 large loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Combine confectioners' sugar with remaining 1/2 cup butter, egg and orange juice and rind in bowl, mixing well. Spread over warm loaf. (This should probably be eaten quickly due to the raw egg in the frosting. I keep refrigerated as well).
