Easy Pumpkin Bread



3 ½  cup Flour
3 cup Sugar
1 ½ teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 cup Chopped Nuts (optional)
4 Eggs
15 oz can pumpkin (1 pound of your own puree)
1 cup cooking oil
2/3 cup water

Preheat oven to 350F. If making mini muffins, preheat oven to 335F.
Mix all ingredients together, except the nuts. Once thoroughly mixed, stir in the nuts if you choose to add them.
Pour into two greased loaf pans (or 8 mini loaf pans). Or mini muffin pans, if using.
Bake for one hour (30 minutes if doing small loaf pans). If making mini muffins, cook for 12 minutes.
Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans.

Recipe Tips:
  1. Freezes very well
  2. Add pecans and/or cranberries to jazz things up ( I like it pure an unadorned)
  3. Makes a great gift for neighbors, teachers, family, friends and whoever else my cross your path!
