Charlie Brown Pumpkin Bread

YUM-O!! This is my first attempt at Pumpkin Bread...my Mom's recipe!!  I always think my Mom's pumpkin bread is so yummy and I just love to eat it!!  So, after eating a whole mini loaf myself (Aaron doesn't like it, can you believe it???) I decided to get the recipe and attempt it myself.  Here are the results!!  And let me tell you...it got rave reviews!  I took the large loaf to work so I wouldn't eat it all and now everyone wants the recipe!  I'll save you all the time and give it to you now.  Just an added side note:  This recipe is an excerpt from a local newspaper...published in 1973!  When I asked my Mom for the recipe she handed me the whole yellowed excerpt...pretty cool!

Charlie Brown Pumpkin Bread
Sift together three and one-third to three and one-half cups flour, two teaspoons baking soda, one and one-half teaspoons salt, one teaspoon nutmeg, one to one and one-half teaspoons cinnamon, one-half teaspoon ginger, one-half teaspoon all spice, two teaspoons cloves.  Mix well with three cups sugar.  
Add one cup oil (vegetable or canola), four eggs, two-thirds cup water, one 15 oz. can of pumpkin.  Mix until smooth.  Pour into greased and floured loaf pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for one hour
