pumpkin bread

We love fall & fall means pumpkin bread, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, apple pie, & carmeled apples - at least to me!This recipe makes two loaves & this is all that's left.
I got this recipe from my sister. It's her mother-in-law's and it's fantastic!
3 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 can pumpkin 15oz.
1 cup oil
3 1/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease & flour two bread pans- set aside.
Cream together sugar & eggs. Add pumpkin & oil, mix. Add dry ingredients. Don't over or under mix- make sure all the spices are incorporated without beating it to death- you know what I mean.
Divide batter into pans & bake for 1 hour & 10 minutes. Insert toothpick; if clean your done- I usually need to bake another 10 minutes but that just may be my oven.
