2 teaspoons baking soda                                                   4 eggs, beaten

1 teaspoon baking powder                                                 1 (16-ounce) can pumpkin

1 teaspoon each: cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice       2/3 cup water

½ teaspoon cloves                                                               ½ to 1 cup chopped pecans

Mix the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves together. Beat the sugar, oil and eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in the pumpkin.  Stir in the dry ingredients. Add the water, pecans and raisins and mix well. Spoon the batter into two well-greased loaf pans.
