1 1/2 - 2 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Cinnamon
3 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
4 Eggs
2/3 Cup water
3 - Cups Self Rising Flour, Sifted
(do not substitute with all purpose flour the result is not the same)
1 Cup Regular Canned Pumpkin (Not Pumpkin Pie Mix)
3/4 - Cup mini or regular semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 Cup Pecan Pieces

Blend First 6 Ingredients together. Add the rest of the ingredients adding the chocolate chips and pecans last. Pour into Two Small Loaf Pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Bread is done when a knife inserted comes out clean and golden on top. cool in pan for about 10-15 minutes then remove from pan and cool completely. I made mini bread loaves I baked each one about 20 minutes.
