Pumpkin Bread

This recipe comes from an old Lutheran cookbook and is a favorite in our family. It makes 3 regular loaves of bread or 8 mini loaves.

4 eggs
3 c. sugar
1 c. canola oil
2/3 c. water
1 1/2 c. pumpkin
3 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. salt

Blend all ingredients in order. Blend lightly. Bake in well-greased loaf tins at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Makes 3 pans. Note: If you use mini loaves, it takes about 40 minutes to cook.
