Pumpkin Spice Bread/Muffins

Another recipe included in our pumpkin recipe exchange for Enrichment.

2 cups canned pumpkin
3 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
3 1/3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking bowder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp ground cloves

Heat the oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, sugar, water, vegetable oil, and eggs. Beat until well mixed. Measure the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, and ground cloves into a separate bowl, then stir until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, beating until smooth. Grease two 9x5 loaf pans, or muffin pans and dust them with flour. Evenly divide the batter between the two pans, or fill the muffin pans 3/4 full. Bake 60-70 minutes, or 25 to 30 minutes for muffins, or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Slice and serve plain, buttered, or with cream cheese.
