I use my Kitchen Aide mixer and put in the water, oil, eggs, and pumpkin. Mix, then add sugar and continue to mix until sugar granules have dissolved.
In a separate bowl stir the flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the liquid bowl and give it a few minutes to mix between addings.
Once all is added, remove bowl from mixer and add Nature's Eats Pecan Pieces and stir by hand. Pour into 2 greased and flour-dusted loaf pans.
Bake at 350°F for 1 hour, or until center cracks open. Spread each cut slice with butter or cream cheese if desired.
