Pumpkin Bread

My mother has made this pumpkin bread recipe each year around Thanksgiving 
since I was a little girl. I often make loaves and give as gifts to friends and 
teachers. This bread is very moist and dense with a lovely spiced pumpkin 

1½ hours 25 min prep 
20 servings 3 9x5x3-inch loaves 

5 cups flour 
3/4 teaspoon baking powder 
3 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg 
1 cup shortening 
4 cups sugar 
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
6 large eggs 
3 cups canned pumpkin 
1 cup water 
1 1/2 cups nuts, chopped 

Grease three 9x5x3-inch loaf pans. 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.. 
Sift together dry ingredients; set aside. 
In a large bowl, cream shortening, sugar, and vanilla. 
Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. 
Add pumpkin; mix well. 
Sift in dry ingredients alternating with water. 
Mix until smooth. 
Fold in nuts. 
Turn batter into prepared pans.
