1 cup margarine, sofened
3 cups sugar

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1-1/2 tsp. cloves
1-1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1-1/4 cups chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
2 cups pure pumpkin puree (canned is fine)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 - 9x5" loaf pans.

In a large bowl, cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs; mix well.

In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients and nuts; stir into creamed mixture just until moistened. Stir in pumpkin.

Pour evenly into prepared pans and bake for 1 hour or until breads test done.

Wrap well and refrigerate overnight. These cakes freeze well and get better with age so they are great when you need to make something ahead of time.
