This recipe has been in my family for about 30 years. We are not big pumpkin eaters, but no one turns down a slice of this bread.—Gale Spross, Wills Point, Texas

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans

"This pumpkin bread is delicious! Very nice flavor! I just used 2 cups of sugar - 3 seemed to be too much. Will make it again!"
