Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, sugar, applesauce, water, and eggs.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and stir until blended.
Pour into bread or cupcake pans (will make 3 medium loafs or 36 cupcakes). Bake at 350 for 45 to 55 minutes for bread, 25 to 35 minutes for muffins, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
*This can seem like a lot of sugar, I know! Keep in mind this recipe makes 3 loaves, but if it still feels like too much sugar for you, some readers have reported that they cut the amount of sugar in half (or even as low as 1 cup) for the whole recipe. I have not tried it this way but some people have preferred it with less sugar.
