Pumpkin Bread

I have a love/hate relationship with these recipe cards. They fold in half so they store in a traditional recipe box in a tidy fashion, but when you open them up, they are large on the screen. I know, first world problems! I do love pumpkin bread though. All sorts of yummy goodness here. Just thinking about a warm slice with a spread of fresh butter…mmmmm. :-) This would be nice on your Thanksgiving table or just any time. Since it makes 3 loaves, they would be nice holiday gifts or housewarming gifts. Of course, we aren’t expecting to have an in-person holiday party *this* year, so we need to figure out how to shove some pumpkin bread through the zoom.

2/3 c shortening

2 2/3 c sugar

4 eggs

1 can (1 lb) pumpkin – (2 cups)
