Pumpkin Spice Bread
Pumpkin Spice Bread 2 cups canned pumpkin 3 cups sugar 1 cup water 1 cup vegetable oil 4 eggs 3 1⁄3 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking soda 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg 3⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves Heat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, water, vegetable oil and eggs. Beat until well mixed. Measure the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, nutmeg and cloves into a separate bowl and stir until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, beating until smooth. Grease two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans and dust with flour. Evenly divide the batter between the two pans. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes, then remove from pans by inverting onto a rack and tapping the bottoms. Slice and serve plain, buttered, or with cream cheese.
