PumpkinBread1.jpg3 cups sugar

4 eggs, beaten

1 cup canola oil

1 (16-ounce) can pumpkin

3 ½ cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon allspice

½ teaspoon ground cloves

1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 cup water


Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.  Pour into three greased and floured loaf pans.  Bake about 45 minutes at 350 degrees or until toothpick inserted near center of loaves comes out clean. 


Adapted from a community cookbook recipe by Carolyn Adams, this bread freezes well.
