Pumpkin Nut Bread

Pumpkin Nut Bread

•    3 cups sugar
•    1 cup of oil (or half oil and half applesauce)
•    4 large eggs
•    3 1/2 cups flour
•    1 1/2 tsp salt
•    2 tsp soda
•    1 tsp cinnamon
•    1 tsp nutmeg
•    1 tsp cloves
•    2/3 water
•    1 -16 oz can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling mix)
•    1 cup pecans (may substitute walnuts if desired, or leave out entirely)

Set oven 350 degrees and spray the inside bottom of the 2 loaf pans with spray.  Mix all wet ingredients together, mix all dry ingredients together in a separate bowl then add to the wet ingredients then add nuts; ensuring that it is not over mixed or it will not rise well. Spoon equally into two prepared loaf pans, dividing equally. Bake at 350 for approx. 1 hour.  Sometimes on "damp" days it will not cook all the way through because these are large loaves and I HATE to make them all dark brown so I put them in the microwave for 1 minute after they come out of the oven. They are perfect! Leave in pan for 5 minutes then turn out and place on top of loaf pan to cool.

Great for breakfast, midnight snack or after school-especially with a cold glass of milk or a HOT cup of coffee or tea.  I hope you enjoy the recipe just as much as my family does!
