Not Your Everyday Pumpkin Bread

Now THIS is some pumpkin bread.  I had intended on taking a neighbor the muffins, but they were gone before they were cool! Delicious.

The recipe makes 2 loaves, but I only have one loaf pan, so I made half the recipe into muffins (with chocolate chips).

Pumpkin Bread

3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup oil
1 can cooked pumpkin
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients together.  Add the wet ingredients and mix well.
Divide into two, greased and floured loaf pans. Or one loaf pan and 8 muffins. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes.  Cool 10-15 minutes in pans then invert and cool completely.
