Preheat oven to 350 and grease loaf pans. (I used mini loaf pans but you could use one large loaf pan).
Mix flour through nutmeg in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl mix the pumpkin through brown sugar and whisk well.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet, alternating with the hot water. (I mixed with a whisk to work out the lumps.)
Pour into loaf pans and bake for 30 minutes (or more for larger loaf pan).
Loaves are done when a tester comes out clean.
Makes 4 small loaves or 1 large loaf.
