I made a pumpkin pie the other day and had half a can of pumpkin left so I started scrolling through allrecipes.com for some way to use it. This was not one of the recipes that popped up at the beginning, it was buried further down, I'm glad I kept going, it's a great recipe. If you want to check out the original recipe here it is.
2 c. flour
2 tsp. b. powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. b. soda
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. butter flavored shortening ( I used margarine)
1 c. pumpkin puree
1/4 c. milk
1/2 c. raisins (optional) (I did add the raisins)
1/4 c. chopped walnuts (I used pecans)
In a mixing bowl combine flour, b. powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice, b. soda and cloves.
In a separate bowl, cream together shortening(margarine) and brown sugar. Mix in eggs, pumpkin and milk. Stir flour mixture into wet mixture until just combined. Fold in raisins and nuts, if desired. Pour into a greased and floured 9x5 loaf pan. I used my yellow Pyrex desert dawn loaf pan.
