As God places each little fragment…we become His Masterpiece. Life is made of moments, choices, beliefs… What we see in our finite minds is not the whole picture but only a fragment of a work in progress. Only God in His infinite wisdom can take the broken, the incomplete and make something beautiful…Mosaic in Thee.

The BEST Pumpkin Bread EVER!

Getting ready for Christmas!  Time to start baking!  
 This is the best pumpkin recipe that I have ever had!  If you make it, I suggest that you make several loaves; it goes fast!  Wrap it up tight and it will freeze well.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!  
Happy baking!

1 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon cloves
¼ teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon salt
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup pumpkin puree
¾ cup canola oil
¼ cup chopped pumpkin seeds, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan.
Combine the flour, soda, powder, spices and salt in a bowl.
Beat the eggs, sugars and vanilla together in an electric mixer on high speed for 30 seconds. Add the pumpkin and the oil and mix well.
Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into prepared loaf pan and sprinkle with pumpkin seeds, if desired.
Bake 60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool in pan 2 or 3 minutes, turn out and wrap it up with saran wrap (this will hold in moisture - making the outside sticky and sweet).
