I love this pumpkin bread. It makes 3 regular loaves, or several small, or soup can breads. It is moist and delicious. Jan

Sorry, its an old recipe right out of the book. I think a No. 2 can is simply the next size bigger. That's what I always buy for this recipe.
I don't know if it is double the 15 oz. can, but only that it is the next size bigger. I will pay more attention to the ounces the next time I am at the store.
Wish I could've been more help.

The larger can is 29 oz & makes 2 pies, the 15 oz makes 1 pie. Also there is plain pumpkin & 1 with spices in it which would change everything!! Use plain pumpkin in recipes,my DD wants pumpkin pies for her Halloween birthday each yr. She wasn't too happy with the 1 pie couple of yrs ago as I had accidentally taken it instead of the regular Libby's recipe from back of big can. She thinks the pre-spiced stuff tastes "funny"! I have an excellent pumpkin bread recipe that has no eggs. Very moist & delicious!!I can't write up recipe like a card with my computer for some reason so just have to run it all together. Sorry! Pumpkin bread-large bowl I use KitchenAid mix in order with large wooden spoon 1-29 oz can pumpkin,4 c. sugar, 1 c. canola oil, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 1/2 tsp cloves, 1 tsp salt, 4 tsp soda, 5 c. flour(I use Gold Medal),2 c. raisins(optional), 1 c. pecans or walnuts. Grease & flour pans either 3 large foil pans or 7 baby pans,(last baby pan will be smaller than the rest. Bake at 350degrees until done about 1 hr for large loaves. Cool, freeze in or out of pans . I do check these to be sure they are done. Toothpick should come out clean when done. Don't overbake!! Good Luck!!
