My mama's Pumpkin Bread

1 tsp. cinnamon
1tsp. nutmeg
1 C cooking oil
1 C canned pumpkin
1 1/2 c. unsifted flour
1 ½ c. oatmeal flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. chopped pecans or walnuts (opt)

*(To make oatmeal flour, put three cups of quick oats in a blender and grind on “chop” speed until it is a fine texture)

Mix together cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, sugars, oil, and eggs. Beat on medium speed 1 minute. Add pumpkin, water, baking soda, flours, and nuts. Beat 1 minute. Grease and flour three loaf pans (or a 1 tube pan) and divide evenly the mixture into the pans. Bake 1 hour or until bread springs back when touched in the center. Turn out while warm and let cool. The bread freezes well. It is also good with cream cheese glaze
