Wet ingredients:
2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups, granulated sugar
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 (15 ounce) can pureed pumpkin (2 cups)
1 (5 ounce) mini can, evaporated milk (or 1/3 cup milk)

Dry Ingredients:
3 1/3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 350'F and grease two 9" x 5" x 3" loaf pans.

In a large bowl or standing mixer, cream together the softened butter and the sugar. Add the egg, pumpkin, and the milk, mixing well.

In a separate bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and mix just to the point that the flour mixture is blended in (don't over-mix). Stir in the walnuts if desired.

Pour the batter evenly into the two greased loaf pans. Bake at 350'F for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 20 minutes. Then run a knife along the edges of the pan and carefully invert the bread to remove from the pan. Wait until completely cool to slice.
