2In large bowl mix pumpkin, eggs, oil, water, and sugar until well blended. in a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Pour into the prepared pans.
3Bake for about 60 minutes in the preheated oven. Loaves are done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
