PUMPKIN BREAD WITH WALNUTS & CHOCOLATE CHIPS

This pumpkin bread recipe was sooo good.  I made a few changes to the original, but I think there are probably several types of nuts / chips you could add for your own twist and it would still be perfect.  Beware, it makes a few loafs so be ready to share! 
You will need:
3 cups white sugar 
1 can pumpkin puree 
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cups water 
4 eggs
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon (I put more)
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg 
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 – 1 1/2 cups walnuts 
(of course the last two are optional, I may even try some roasted pumpkin seeds or almonds next time)
1. Preheat oven to 350.  Grease and flour your pans!
2. Combine sugar, pumpkin, oil, water, and eggs in a large bowl.  Beat until smooth.  Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.  Stir in nuts and chips.  Fill your baking cans about 1/2 – 3/4 way full 
3. Bake for 45-60 minutes.  I would check at around 45 minutes.  Insert a knife or toothpick, if it comes out clean then your bread is ready.  Cool before removing from pan.  
Happy baking!
