2 cups solid pumpkin
1/2  teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 Tablespoons baking soda


2 cups confectioners sugar

Add pumpkin to egg mixture and stir.  Add water and vanilla and stir.  Add dry ingredients, and nuts and stir.

Spray three loaf pans with a non-stick cooking spray and evenly divide batter into the three pans.  Place pans into oven and bake for 30 -35 minutes until done.  Cool completely and frost with icing.
