Pumpkin Bread

This is my Gramma's recipe and I've not found another that compares.  It's a great way to start a day of Thanksgiving, which is what I'll be doing tomorrow - Happy Thanksgiving!

1 cup pumpkin puree
3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2/3 cup water
4 eggs
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Grease and flour 2 large loaf pans.  Preheat oven to 350.
Mix sugar and oil together in a large bowl.  Add eggs and pumpkin then mix.  Lastly, add water and mix until batter pulls together.
Combine all the dry ingredients (except nuts) together in a separate bowl.  Then gradually add dry mixture to the wet ingredients.  Gently stir in nuts.
Pour an even amount of batter into each loaf pan.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, then rotate loaf pans and turn oven down to 325.  Bake for 40 minutes.  Let bread cool in pans for 1 hour before slicing and serving.
