Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick spray, line with parchment paper (this will make it much easier to remove from pan)
In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, eggs, and oil. Whisk or beat with mixer until smooth, about 1 minute
Add in water and pumpkin and mix until well blended
Stir in pumpkin pie spice
In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients- flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well with a wooden spoon
Add dry ingredients into pumpkin mixture and stir until fully incorporated
Pour batter into the pan and bake for 1 hour. A toothpick should be able to come out clean.
Let cool in pan for at least 10 minutes before removing to cool on cooling rack.
Slice and serve with coffee!
