Perfect Everytime Pumpkin Bread

3 1/3 Cups flour
4 teaspoons Cinnamon
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
2 2/3 Cups Sugar
2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
4 Eggs
15 oz Pumpkin fresh or canned (unsweetened) 
2/3 Cup Water
1/2 Cup nuts (optional)
1 Cup dried Cranberries (optional)

Sift dry ingredients together. Beat sugar, oil, add eggs 1 at a time until blended.  Add pumpkin then mix.  Add dry ingredients to the wet, a little at a time alternating with the water.  Stir in nuts or cranberries.  Cover the bottom of 2 loaf pans with a rectangle of parchment paper, then pour the batter into the pans.  You can mix a little cinnamon/sugar and sprinkle over the top before baking.  
Bake in 325 oven for 55-60 minutes, check for doneness.  
Cool at least 15 minutes before removing from pans.

Perfect everytime.
 But, be careful - - -  this is not diet food.
