This is called a bread, but tastes more like a cake. I make this mostly during the holidays. The spices in this cake just lend themselves to eggnog and Christmas smells. Recipe will make: 4 small loaves, or 2 medium loaves, or 1 large loaf, or 1 bundt cake.
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 3 eggs
- 2 (6 ounce) jars plum baby food
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 teaspoon red food coloring
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 In a large bowl, mix together vegetable oil, white sugar, eggs, baby food, and food coloring.
2 In separate bowl, mix together flour, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda and nuts.
3 Mix wet and dry ingredients together.
4 Place in greased and floured bundt pan, (you can also use cooking spray).
5 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 50-60 minutes or until it tests done.
6 Remove from oven to cool 10 minutes in pan. Remove and place on cooling rack.
7 While cooling, combine confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice.
