Jo's Pumpkin Bread

A knock on the door --- and I was pleased to see Jo stopping by to drop off this pumpkin bread recipe along with a sample for us to try.  She made mini-loaves last week for her office mates for Valentine's Day,  and was telling me how good this recipe is!  So, I encouraged her to contribute it to the blog.  (Anyone who contributes to the blog this year gets a book next year, did I mention that?!?)

It's one of those hand-me-down family recipes --- short on directions, but the combination of ingredients is just right.

Pumpkin Bread

3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
4 eggs
1 1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1 t. allspice
1/2 t. cloves
2/3 cup water
2 cups pumpkin (1 - 16 ounce can)
3 1/2 cups flour
2 t. soda

Mix all ingredients.  Bake in 2 loaf pans/greased.  350 degrees --1 hour.  Nuts and raisins may be added.
