My Favorite Pumpkin Bread

This bread is so wonderfully moist and yummy with just the right hint of spice, I don't know why I always wait until autumn to make it! I made a loaf today (mixing time, approximately 7 minutes) and the aroma while baking was simply delightful. If you have a cup of pumpkin puree and 7 minutes, you've got a fresh, homemade Pumpkin Bread! Enjoy it with a cup of chai tea and you'll be feeling like Thanksgiving has arrived (which it almost has, in fact!).

2 eggs
1 1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 2/3 c. flour
1 cup pumpkin puree (canned or homemade)
1/2 cup water

Beat the eggs. Add sugar and oil, blend. Add dry ingredients and beat on medium speed. Add pumpkin and water, mix well on low speed. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 325 degrees for one hour. Cool 10 minutes in the pan. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
