Yummy, Yummy Pumpkin Bread!

This is the yummiest pumpkin bread I've ever had. It's pretty easy to make too. I got the recipe from the allrecipes website. I've made it 5 or 6 times so far and taken it to a couple of potlucks and everyone loves it! It usually doesn't last very long, even though the recipe makes 3 loaves! I'm not sure why, but it says to use coffee cans, I just use the regular loaf pans. I hope you enjoy it!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

3 cups white sugar
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
4 eggs
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 1 pound size coffee cans, or three 9x5 inch loaf pans.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, oil, water, and eggs. Beat until smooth. Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Fill cans 1/2 to 3/4 full.
Bake for 1 hour, or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Cool on wire racks before removing from cans or pans.
