Pumpkin Bread

This is the first thing that I'm baking from the 2 large pumpkins that I baked and froze.  I have been thinking about getting another to make a batch of pumpkin butter next weekend.



Pumpkin Bread

1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup canola oil
1/3 cup water
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 cups raisins (optional)
1/2 cups walnuts finely chopped (optional)

Mix together sugar and pumpkin.  Add in eggs, oil and water.  Gradually mix in dry ingredients.  Add in raisins and walnuts last.  Bake in a greased loaf pan.
  Bake for 1 hour at 350°F
