first day of school – pumpkin bars


How did your kids first day of school go?  My daughter did great today and came home to her favorite fresh baked pumpkin bars. These have been a staple since we found them in the Feingold Handbook recipe section


4 eggs
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 (16 ounce) can pumpkin
1 cup oil
2/3 cup water
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs, add sugar and beat together.

Add pumpkin, oil and water, and stir until well mixed. Beat in flour, soda, cinnamon,
nutmeg and salt. Stir in nuts. Pour batter into two well-greased and floured 9 x 5-inch loaf pans and bake for 1 hour. Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pans.
