Pumpkin Bread


This recipe came from my sister Laurie. My family prefers it without so much spice. I usually omit the allspice and cut the nutmeg and cloves to 1/2 tsp each.

3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 can (16oz) pumpkin
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
4 eggs
2/3 cups water

Mix sugar and oil together. Mix in eggs and pumpkin. In separate bowl, combine flour, spices and soda. Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mix alternately with water. Pour into 2 well greased 9x5 in loaf pans. Bake 350 1 1/2 hours or until done. Remove from pan to cool. If using 3 smaller loaf pans, check at 1 hour.
