Tuesdays At The Table - Pumpkin Pecan Loaves

First - I want to say WELCOME to all the new people that have joined us in the past few weeks. I'm so happy that you added to the fun! The more, the merrier. :-)

Second - Andrea has an announcement, so drop by and visit her, OK?!


I love baking for my friend, family and co-workers. This is one of their favorites...

Pumpkin Pecan Loaves

3 1/3 cups all purpose flour
3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 can (15 oz.) solid pack pumpkin
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Caramel glaze

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream
2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl combine the pumpkin, oil, eggs and water; mix well. Stir dry ingredients (first 6 items) until combined. Fold in pecans. Spoon into two 9x5 loaf pans; bake at 350 for 60-65 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes then turn out onto cooling racks.

For glaze, combine sugar, brown sugar, butter and cream in a saucepan. Cook on low to medium until sugar is dissolved. Let cool for 20 minutes and then stir in confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle over cooled loaves.
