¼ cup vegetable oil
¾ cup light molasses
1 can pumpkin (not pie filling)
2 cups finely ground whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. each, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg
½ cup raisins
½ cup chopped nuts
Grease a 4x9x3 inch loaf pan.
Beat eggs and add oil, molasses, and pumpkin.
Sift together all remaining ingredients except raisins and nuts.
Pour batter into greased loaf pan, filling to about ¾ full.
Bake in preheated 350° oven for about 60 to 70 minutes or until done.
(After the first 45 minutes, if bread is browning too quickly, reduce temperature to 300° for the remaining 25 minutes.)
Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
