Pumpkin Bread

I have been in a baking mood latley......
I hardly ever getting in a baking mood.....
and I NEVER get in a cooking mood....
But Saturday I wanted to bake something so
I decided on Pumpkin Bread.
The directions I have always gone by came off a can
of Del Monte Pumpkin mix years ago since Del Monte
does not make pumpkin mix anymore.
These directions will make to large loaves of bread.
Or in my case, 3 small and one large.

3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
4 eggs, beaten
1 (16 oz.) can pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2/3 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Well grease and flour 2 (9x5-inch) loaf pans.

Cream sugar and oil together. Add eggs and pumpkin; mix well; set aside

Sift together dry ingredients; add dry ingredients alternating with 2/3 cup water to the wet ingredients. Pour into prepared pans.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours or until tests done. Let stand 10 minutes. Remove from pans to cool.

Make 2 loaves
