Pre-cook pumpkin in microwave or in a sauce pan for 8 minutes and remove. Combine oil, eggs, water, vanilla and pumpkin in a mixing bowl. Sift all dry ingredients together in another bowl. Merge the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and stir until blended well. Add the nuts if desired. Pour into 3 greased loaf pans about 3/4 full.
In a pre-heated oven, bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
This recipe was formed by combining 2 different recipes to suit my taste. I guess you could call it an original.
