With Halloween just around the corner, our dear friend, Pat Herrera (pictured with grandson Nathan), is sharing this excellent and deliciously moist pumpkin bread recipe.  You can add chopped nuts, raisins or dried cranberries as a variation. It tastes even better the second day. Pat is the ultimate realtor, working for The BlackHawk Real Estate Company (J. Rockcliff Realtors). If you use her services, you will want her as your realtor for life.  She is an incredible woman in all that she does for her family, friends, customers and community.

3 ½ cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 cup vegetable or canola oil
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
2 cups pumpkin
3 cups sugar
1 ½ cups chopped nuts, optional

Sift dry ingredients together. Mix pumpkin, water, oil, nuts and eggs together. Pour into dry mixture and mix well. Pour into two greased medium loaf pans. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for approximately 70 minutes or until toothpick comes out clear. Cool before removing from pans.
