How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 350ºF.  Spray 2 loaf pans with vegetable cooking spray.

Step 2

Stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a medium bowl.

Step 3

Beat the pumpkin, oil, sugar and eggs in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until the mixture is smooth.  Add the flour mixture and beat just until combined.  Stir in the walnuts and raisins.  Pour the batter into the pans.

Step 4

Bake for 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center of a loaf comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pans on a wire rack for 15 minutes.  Remove the bread from the pans and let cool completely.
