what to bring to Thanksgiving Dinner

What's for Dinner???

Ingredients: Bring a loaf of Pumpkin Bread

  • 2 cups canned pumpkin
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves


Heat oven to 350. in a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, water, vegetable oil and eggs. Beat until well mixed. Measure the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, nutmeg and cloves into a separate bowl and stir until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, beating until smooth. Grease two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans and dust with flour. Evenly divide the batter between the two pans. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes, then remove from pans by inverting onto a rack and tapping the bottoms. Slice and serve plain, buttered, or with cream cheese.

Hot Lemon Curd Sauce
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour.
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut up into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  •  Now I didn't use a double boiler I made Renee just stir constantly
  • and Believe me she did a wonderful job. It is best on hot Gingerbread

    Dear Yvonne, I love lemon curd too, and make it often...I like to use it swirled through fresh whipped cream on top of fresh berries, served with sponge cake! I must try it with pumpkin bread...wishing you and Renee a Happy Thanksgiving from Canada, N.xo
