Old Pumpkin Bread!

This pumpkin bread isn't really old, but the recipe has been in my family for many years. And with good reason. It's delicious!! Serve this pumpkin bread with a light swipe of whipped cream cheese. In our family, it isn't fall until we have eaten a slice of this bread!

 Old Family Recipe 
Pumpkin Bread

3 1/2 cups Flour
2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
3 cups Sugar
1 cup Corn Oil
4 Eggs
2/3 cup Water
2 cup Pumpkin
Measure the flour into a bowl.
 Add baking soda,
and salt.
Add cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar.
Whisk everything together.
Form a well in the bowl of ingredients.
Add the eggs,
the corn oil, the water, and the pumpkin.
Mix everything together,
until every ingredient is incorporated.
Spray a loaf pan. 
Cook for 1 hour at 350 degrees. The loaf pans that 
I use are rather large. If you used the ones in the picture,
on the left, this recipe would make 3. Because I used my large pan, 
I only had enough for one other pan. Make sure to check
the bread with a toothpick. The top cooks last, so make 
sure it is done before you remove it from the oven.
Cool the bread in the pan for 15 minutes, then take
a knife or spatula around the edge, and let it sit in the 
pan until completely cool. 
It's a piece of heaven!
Enjoy!
