Pumpkin Bread

I managed to escape making pumpkin anything so far this fall.  The marketplace seems to be filled with pumpkin spice coffees, teas, everything.  I went back to my roots and made this simple but moist bread.





Pumpkin Bread

1/3 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cloves
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisins

Cream together shortening and sugar.  Add in pumpkin and eggs.  Add in the dry ingredients.  Fold in raisins.  Place in a greased bread pan.  Bake for 1 hour at 375°.
