4 eggs
1 c. vegetable oil

1 t. nutmeg
1 t. salt
3 c. all-purpose flour
2 c. Libby's 100% pure pumpkin (one can)
1 1/2 c. nuts, optional(i use walnuts)

Combine sugars, eggs, oil and water in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Add spices, salt and soda. Add flour, gradually, mixing until well blended. Add pumpkin and nuts and mix well. Bake by schedule below* until done. Cool and store. May be frozen.
