Ingredients

  • 1

    cup vegetable oil

  • 2 2/3

    cups sugar

  • 4

    large eggs

  • 2

    cups (1-15 oz can) pumpkin (not pie filling)

  • 2/3

    cups water

  • 3 1/3

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    tsp baking powder

  • 2

    tsp. baking soda

  • 1 1/2

    tsp. salt

  • 1

    tsp nutmeg

  • 1

    tsp vanilla extract

  • 1

    cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

  • 1 1/2

    cups chocolate chips (optional)

  • Coarse white sugar to sprinkle on top (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two 8 1/2 X 4 1/2 loaf pans for plain verson or 9 X 5 loaf pans if adding nuts or chips. In a large bowl, beat together oil, sugar, eggs, pumpking, and water. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and vanilla, stirring to combine. Mix in chips and/or nuts (if using). Spoon the batter into prepared pans. Sprinkle the tops of the loaves with coarse sparkling sugar, if desired. Bake the bread for 60-80 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center of each loaf comes out clean; and that same tester inserted about 1/2 inch into the top of the loaf doesn't encounter any totally unbaked batter. Remove the bread from the oven, cool it on a rack. When completely cool, wrap it well in plastic wrap, and store it overnight before serving.
