Pumpkin Bread

We are a long way from anything that even resembles Fall here on the Texas Gulf Coast.  I took this to a family gathering Labor Day weekend.  I cobbled together a few recipes to come up with this one.  I have to admit I did not care for the sugar topping and would try something different next time.  No complaints though.


1 cup vegetable oil
5 eggs
1 can 100% pumpkin
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 small package instant vanilla pudding (dry)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup toasted chopped pecans

In a mixing bowl add oil, eggs and pumpkin. Mix until smooth.  Combine dry ingredients and add to pumpkin mixture. Mix well.  Add pecans.  Pour into 2 large loaf pans that have been sprayed with Pam or Bakers Joy.  Sprinkle crumb topping on and pat down. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.

Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter

Mix together dry ingredients.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
