I know this recipe calls for canned pumpkin, but it is still the
best recipe for it I've ever tasted.

3 c sugar
1 c oil
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 can pumpkin
3 1/2 c all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
2/3 c water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix sugar and oil.  Add pumpkin and eggs.  
Blend well.  Then, add flour, spices, and water.  Mix 
completely.  Pour into two, well-greased loaf pans.  Bake for 
1 1/2 hours.

Note:  I have a gas oven that gets really hot, so I don't let
my bread cook for the whole 1 1/2 hours.  I check it after an 
hour (just press the top of the loaves - if they spring back
their done or use the toothpick test).
