Pumpin Fruit Bread

Pumpkin Fruit Bread

2 cups sugar 
1 cup vegetable oil 
3 eggs 
1 - 16 oz. can cooked pumpkin 
3 cups all-purpose flour 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1⁄2 teaspoon salt 
1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1 teaspoon ground cloves 
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
1 cup chopped nuts 
1 cup raisins 
1 cup chopped dates

2 loaves

In a large mixing bowl, beat together sugar and oil. Beat in eggs and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin and mix well. Sift together flour, soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg and add to pumpkin mixture. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in nuts, raisins and dates, and pour into 2 9x5-inch loaf pans greased with vegetable cooking spray. Bake at 325 degrees for 60-70 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Leave loaves in pans for 10 minutes before removing; cool on wire racks.

This is one of my favorite recipes and so easy to make It is wonderfully spicy for the colder months and it makes 2 loaves so you can have one for yourself and give one as a gift.

Look for the Norovirus video coming soon!
