Alice’s Pumpkin Loaf

When we moved to Los Angeles, over 17 years ago, we were immediately embraced by a wonderful community of talented and loving people who also happen to be great cooks! My friend, Alice, is one of those individuals. Her recipe for Pumpkin Loaf is easy, delicious and a true crowd pleaser. I guarantee you will quickly add it to your favorites as well! Alice informs me that she now cuts the sugar in half. As yet, my sweet toothed family has not allowed me to do that, so I use the recipe as is.  However,  I invite you to try it with less sugar and see what you think.

2 Cups Sugar
½ Cup Canola Oil
1 16 oz can of  Pumpkin
2 ½ Cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda

Sift together dry ingredients and add to mixture
