Pumpkin Muffins

**I made the loaf instead

One of the coolest people I know, Diane (who can set up a tent, camp stove/kitchen in 10 minutes flat) made these Pumpkin Muffins one Christmas and I fell in love with them! They freeze well and you can just zap them in the microwave to enjoy on a busy morning. Here is the recipe she sent me this morning...
In Diane's Words--

Here's the Pumpkin bread recipe. I still make it all the time.

3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 can (16 oz) solid packed pumpkin
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or use 1 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp all spice)
1/2 cup water

Combine sugar, oil and eggs. Add pumpkin and mix well.
Combine dry ingredients; add to pumpkin mixutre alternately with water. Pour into greased loaf or muffin pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes (loaf pans--less for muffins)

I've also used a bunt pan and it came out just as nice.
