Pumpkin Bread/Muffins

5 cups flour
4 cups sugar
3 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups oil
3/4 cup water
1 large (29 oz) canned pumpkin

Grease and flour 4 large loaf pans. Preheat oven to 350*. Sift together all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Beat together eggs, oil, water, and pumpkin. Add to flour mixture. Bake at 350* for 1 hour (for bread) or when center comes out clean.

Cream Cheese Frosting (optional, but so good on top!)
1 stick of butter
1 8 oz. cream cheese
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

This makes a large batch for delivering to families for the holidays, but if you want to make less, you could cut it in half.
