Grandma's Pumpkin Bread

This pumpkin bread is delicious and reminds me of my Grandma. It is one of my favorite recipes from her. She baked this bread in cans.  You can use soup cans or fruit cans.  Us grand kids thought this was so cool- circle bread!  The fruit cans give you a wider loaf and that is usually what I use.  It's important that you use cans that are not a peel back lid, but one you would need to use a can opener on.  The peel back lids have a ridge and the bread doesn't come out very easily.  Enjoy :) -Kristin

2 eggs
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. pumpkin
1/2 c. oil
1/4 c. water
1/4 t. baking powder

1/2 t. cloves
1/2 t. cinnamon
