Best Pumpkin Bread

This is the best, homiest, most wonderfully sweet and spicy smelling recipe that I could find for such a cold winter-ish day. It is almost worth baking just for how it makes the house smell! The recipe makes 3 loaves - if you don't eat them all right away, they freeze well and are great to share. Enjoy!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread (from Allrecipe.com)

1 (15oz) can pumpkin puree
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
3 cups white sugar
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground ginger

In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, eggs, oil, water and sugar. In another bowl combine the rest of the ingredients. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Pour into 3 greased 7 x 3 loaf pans. Bake at 350 for approx 50 minutes. Loaves are done when a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Wonderful!
