Aileen’s Pumpkin Bread from The Bowman House in New York

Is fantastic recipe comes from one of my favorite books called the American Country Inn Bed and Breakfast cookbook by Kitty and Lucian Maynard.
From Kitty and Lucian’s description of the Bowman house it’s a place I would like to go one day. Evidently it is located in the heart of the wine country and I’d a restored 1880’s house.

Note: The book was printed in 1990 so some of the contact info might have changed, but you could locate it still.

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup oil
