Pumpkin Bread

Source: All Recipes

My mom makes the absolute best pumpkin bread ever! So when I decided to tackle making pumpkin bread I was a bit nervous. I found this recipe and decided to go for it. Surprisingly, my first attempt was really good. Next time I'll reduce the cooking time by just a bit - the sides got a little over done. But other than that - it was very good.

3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups solid pack pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups white sugar
2/3 cup water
4 eggs

Grease and flour three 7 x 3 inch pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Measure flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and spices into a large bowl. Stir to blend. Add pumpkin, water, salad oil, eggs, and nuts. Beat until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake for approximately 1 hour.
