    3      cups          sugar
    1      cup           vegetable oil
    3      large         eggs
    1      16 ounce can  solid pack pumpkin
    3      cups          all purpose flour
    1      teaspoon      ground cloves
    1      teaspoon      ground cinnamon
    1      teaspoon      ground nutmeg
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      1/2  teaspoon      baking powder
    1      cup           coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)
 
 Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans. Beat
 sugar and oil in large bowl to
 blend. Mix in eggs and pumpkin. Sift flour, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg,
 baking soda, salt and baking
 powder into another large bowl. Stir into pumpkin mixture in 2
 additions. Mix in walnuts, if desired.
 
 Divide batter equally between prepared pans. Bake until tester inserted
 into center comes out clean, about
 1 hour 10 minutes. Transfer to racks and cool 10 minutes. Using sharp
 knife, cut around edge of loaves.
 Turn loaves out onto racks and cool completely.
 
 Serve one of these loaves the day you make them. Wrap the other in foil
 and freeze up to one month so
 that you'll have it on hand for unexpected company.
 
 Makes 2 loaves.
