This pumpkin bread is so quick & easy, you literally cannot mess it up.  It turns out so moist and delicious, it's almost pumpkin cake!  Sooo yummy!!!!!

Here's what you'll need:

Preheat oven, 350 degrees.

Combine Eggs, Oil and Sugar. Slowly add remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.  Butter and flour 3 loaf pans or one bundt pan.  Bake for 45-60 minutes.  I usually bake them a little longer than 60 minutes, but that will depend on your oven and elevation.  Insert toothpick in the center of the loaf, if it comes out clean, they are done!
