Pumpkin Bread Recipe

3 cups Sugar
4 eggs
2 cups pumpkin
1 cup oil

3 1/3 cup flour
2 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp total of following:
1/8 tsp mace
1/8 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp ginger

1 cup choppped nuts (optional)
1/3 cup water

Combine sugar, eggs, pumpkin, and oil, and mix well. Combine in a separate bowl the other dry ingredients, mix together, then add slowly to the first group. Be sure everything is mixed well (I have found my mixer doesn't do a very good job, and I usually wind up mixing it a little by hand). Add chopped nuts if you like (I don't care for them myself).

Grease and Flour 2 loaf pans (do this well or the loaves will stick to the pans). Bake at 350 degrees for 1 to 1 1/4 hours.

I think this tastes best when served hot. If eating them later, consider toasting the slices, or even sticking them in a microwave.
