3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
3 cups sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
3 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp allspice
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup oil
1 16 oz can of pumpkin
2/3 cup of water
4 eggs
1 cups raisins (optional)
½ cup nuts (optional)

Mix everything together and bake in greased loaf pans in a preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Fill the loaf pans about ½ full of batter. To test the bread: insert a toothpick into the center of the loaf and if it comes out clean, it is done. Do not over bake as that will dry out the bread.

This is wonderful served with Yorkshire Gold, Darjeeling or English/Irish Breakfast. Enjoy!

I love pumpkin bread! A little deli close to where I worked many years ago sold 2 pieces together with cream cheese in the center. It was heavenly!

Betsy and Willow, It is perfect for these cooler evenings and mornings and wonderful with softened cream cheese spread on a slice:^)

Kalianne, Thanks! Enjoy yours as well...

It's perfect with any of the teas mentioned and they are among my favorites as well. The only one missing is Earl Grey which is at the top for me...

I just noticed the suggestion at the end of your post, on which tea to drink with this bread. I think I will enjoy the Darjeeling (a favourite of mine).
