COOK TIME
1 Hr 30 Min

As you smell this wonderful bread baking, just imagine the Pennsylvania growing fields bursting with ready-to-pick, bright orange pumpkins.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup canned 100% pure pumpkin (not pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients; mix well and pour into prepared loaf pan.
     
  3. Bake about 1-1/2 hours or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
     
  4. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

This is so easy to make and is so moist and yummy! We love it.

Some of you are commenting on it being a whole can of pumpkin, but the recipe says 1 cup. I'm sure there is more than a cup of pumpkin in the can. Not sure how much pumpkin to use for the recipe, but it sounds like a good one.

It seems like alot of sugar??

it is one can of pure pumpkin,do you get it now.I made this today and it is so good

Everybody here posting is discussing the technical processing of pumpkin...I guess that is ok but what I want to know is HOW DOES IT TASTE? would like to know opinions of that question before I go through the hassle of processing a pumpkin.

I so disagree with the poster below who said fresh pumpkins aren't worth it. Get a sugar pumpkin, was it., take the stem off and cut it and bake it at 450 for about 30 mins after taking the seeds out. scoop out the pulp, puree it and you have your canned pumpkin. Alterntely you could clean as above except stap it once and score the outside, bake it whole same temp until being punctured with a fork it is soft. wait until it is cool, peel off the skin and scoop out the seeds... puree and once again you have pumpkin...tastes better than canned!!!

Can someone help? friends gave me a large pumpkin and want to know how to substitute for can one for this recipe?

Large pumpkins aren't suitable for cooking. They have too much sinew inside. What you want is a small pumpkin, say, less than a foot across. Cut a hole in the top and spoon out the pumpkin meat inside. If you want to use it in this recipe, you'll have to steam it till it's soft and then it through a food processor, till it's like canned pumpkin. It's really not worth the trouble. Canned pumpkin is ideal to cook with and I'm not aware of any impurities in it -- plain old canned pumpkin is just pure pumpkin.

I have been looking for this recipe for a long time thank you

Maybe they changed the recipe after you posted. It reads 1 cup of canned pumpkin

This recipe asks for 1 can of pumpkin without choosing a size. Is the recipe calling for a large or small can of pumpkin?

Appears the recipe calls for 1 cup of canned pumpkin, not 1 can of pumpkin. Let's hope I read it right ...
