Mom's Pumpkin Bread




3 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cups pumpkin puree
3 1/3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Beat sugar, eggs, oil and pumpkin in large bowl together well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, soda, salt, cloves and cinnamon with a whisk. Gently mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Add nuts (optional).

Grease two bread loaf pans and divide batter into the two pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

For cream cheese frosting:

mix:
8 ounces cream cheese
4 Tablespoons butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 pound powdered sugar

Add more sugar to thicken and/or milk to thin out. You want it to be pretty thick. Serve with slices of bread.
