Pumpkin Bread

This is a nice recipe for pumpkin bread.

2 tsp. cinnamon
one 16 ounce can of canned pumpkin
2 tsp. nutmeg
3 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon allspice
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 and 1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups of water
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
2 lightly floured and greased loaf pans( 9"X5")
2 tsp. baking soda

In a large bowl , stir together flour, spices , salt and baking soda.
Now add your eggs , oil, water and the pumpkin and mix in nicely until you have a batter.
You can add your nuts now if you wish. They are optional in the recipe, of course.

Pour the mixture into the loaf pans and bake for about one hour at 350° F
Test with a toothpick or tester . If it comes out clean the bread is finished.

Cool a bit and serve or wait one day as it tastes better the next day.
You can refrigerate it once you wrap it in clear cling wrap.

Enjoy.
