3 1/3 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
2 cups pumpkin puree
3 cups sugar

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. To this well, add the remaining ingredients. Mix until smooth.If you’d like, add 1/2 cup chopped pecans to the mix. Grease and flour 3 pans. Divide batter evenly between the pans. Bake at 350F for 1 hour or until the bread tests done.”
