Pumpkin Nut Bread

I've been trying my hand at many different quick breads lately...just to shake up the breakfast routine a bit. This Pumpkin Nut Bread is very tasty, especially warm. I love eating it on a cold spring morning...actually, I love eating it anytime, because this bread is "FANTABULOUS" ! It's very moist like a quick bread should be, tastes divine and it disappears quickly if eaten by pumpkin lovers...like ME! YUMMY!

Pumpkin Nut Bread
3 1/3 c. flour
3 c. sugar
2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
3 t. cinnamon
1 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. ground nutmeg
1/2 t. ground cloves
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin
4 eggs
1/2 c. oil
1/2 c. applesauce
2/3 c. water
1 t. vanilla
1 c. chopped walnuts

Combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and gently stir with a wooden spoon. Add pumpkin, eggs, oil, applesauce, water, nuts and vanilla. Stir until well blended (I used my mixer for this part, but you can use a spoon if you choose). Pour batter into 3 greased and floured bread loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes before removing bread from pans. Place on a paper towel or wire rack to cool completely.
