1 cup oil
4 eggs
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup chopped dates
2 cups pumpkin
3 cups flour
3 teaspoon spices (total) pumpkin pie spice, ginger, cinnamon and allspice
1/2 teaspoon soda
3 cups sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder

Beat eggs, oil, and pumpkin. Sift dry ingredients together. Stir into pumpkin mixture, mix well. Add pecans and dates. Bake in greased and floured pan or Bundt pan for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Frost with cream cheese icing if desired.
