Pumpkin Bread + idea.

I'm sure of two things. {Ok...I'm sure of really more than that but for today's blogging's two}. I'm sure that: I have the BEST pumpkin bread recipe of ALL time.  And...I'm sure that:  I have the BEST counselors and advisors in my Young Womens organization.  I am just super lucky like that.  Yesterday....I combined the TWO and came up with this little treat.

Loaf pans found at Michaels for $1

Wrapped up and ready to deliver!

Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Beat 5 eggs


1 1/3 cup oil
1 - 16 oz. can pumpkin
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. baking soda
2 - 3 oz. pkg. instant vanilla pudding {this is the KEY ingredient!}

Mix until creamy.  Add nuts, raisins, or CHOCOLATE favorite!

Bake at 350 until done.  If you are baking mini muffins with this recipe, bake for 12-15 minutes.

Makes 24 muffins or 2 large loaf pans or 5 small loaf pans.


  1. TOO cute, as always!

    And vanilla pudding! YUM!

  2. Don't forget your Secretary! We couldn't live without ours!!! :) I'm sure you don't, she just isn't listed in the paragraph I read about your great counselors.

  3. Where did you get the adorable baking pans?

  4. My secretary is fabulous! I think I just consider her as one of my counselors :) The pans were purchased at Michaels for $1. Thanks for your comments!

  5. I am so glad that I found your blog! I have been in Young Womens for 4 years and just got put in as the president 6 months ago and I am out of ideas!! This is such a cute idea! I love it! THanks for sharing! You seem like such an fun caring president! :)

  6. Hi Marci, My daughter-in-law put me in touch with your blog. You do sound so upbeat and loving toward your counselors. I do not bake...I hate to cook...but once in awhile I'll try something, and your pumpkin bread recipe sounds great. long is "bake until done?" I would have no idea how long that would be!

  7. It took my mini loaf pans about 40-45 minutes to cook. If you are cooking 2 LARGE loaf takes about 60-70 minutes. I just keep checking it and testing with a toothpick!
