Ahhh the smell of Pumpkin

My husband LOVES pumpkin bread. So to celebrate the first day of Fall, I made him some pumpkin bread and boy was it yummy. Here's the recipe for everyone to try... I PROMISE its YUMMY.

1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
3 cups white sugar
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
And the special ingredient is a touch of love.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 7x3 inch loaf pans.
In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Pour into the prepared pans.
Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven. Loaves are done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
This recipe will make 2 regular size loafs or 8 mini loafs (I like the mini loafs so I can give them out).
*** for a sweeter tasting bread- use Pumpkin Pie Filling instead of Pumpkin Puree. The Husband preferred the sweeter one***
