Mom's Pumpkin Bread (family fall classic!)

3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp nutmeg
3 cups sugar
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
2 cups pumpkin
1 cup oil
1 1/2 cup walnuts
Mix wet ingredients together, then dry ingredients together and add them gradually, then walnuts. Bake in ungreased baking pans at 350 for one hour. Yummy! - K

We recently revisited this at Thanksgiving and b/c of the sweetness of the pumpkin we reduced the sugar by 1/2 cup. Still super yummy!

Thanks K! Juliette helped me make this recently for the first time. It was a huge hit as an activity and a treat.

revisited, with less sugar, about 1/3 of sugar replaced with grade b maple syrup (thanks jen) and shy 1/2 cup of pumpkin, I replaced it with applesauce. Results? Delicious!
