3c. all-purpose flour
1 3/4c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 can (16 oz.) pumpkin
1c. vegetable oil
4 eggs - lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour four 6"x3"x2" metal or foil loaf pans.
In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and baking powder. Add pumpkin, oil and eggs. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened and mixture is smooth. Pour into loaf pans.
Bake for approx. 45 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
Once cooled, wrap in plastic wrap, then foil and store overnight before slicing. Spread slices with softened cream cheese, if desired.
If you prefer, use two 9"x5"x3" loaf pans and bake for 60 -70 minutes.
