How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Dottie's Pumpkin Bread

** This is a Colorado College favorite. The original recipe came from Dottie Harmon.  By the end of college, it was passed around the whole campus & through all the sorority houses.

Mix:
3 cups sugar
 1 cup of oil
Add:
4 eggs (one at a time)
Mix well, then add:
2/3 cup water
2 tsp soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
16 oz can of pumpkin
3 ½ cups flour


Bake at 350 for about 60 minutes (for large loaves). For small loaves, 35-40 minutes.  Makes 3 large loaves or 6-8 small.  Also makes great muffins .  Oat topping is delicious!!
