More Pumpkin Bread, please!

If you want your home to smell like "pumpkin spice"
for a couple days, try this! The aroma lingers! Maryjane Bigler's Blue Ribbon Pumpkin Bread

(I won my blue ribbon at my hometown family festival!)
1 cup Crisco oil
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
2 cups pumpkin
3 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups sugar
2 t baking soda
1 t nutmeg
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
handful of raisins & chopped nuts-optional
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
*Blend together in mixer, oil, eggs, water, sugar and pumpkin.
*Mix together dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then slowly add to pumpkin mixture. Beat until well blended. Add raisins and nuts.
*Grease and flour 2 large loaf pans or several mini pans 2/3 full.
*Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes for large loafs and less for mini or until bread passes the clean toothpick test!

I have been making this yummy bread for 35+ years and it is always a big hit...more please!
Enjoy! Maryjane xo
