This is my Great, Great Aunt Jeannette Sutton's recipe. It was printed in my mom's cookbook she made for us over 20 years ago. It is good.

How to Make Pumpkin Bread


  1. Sift all dry ingredients together. That would be flour, spices, salt, baking soda and sugar.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients with all the wet ingredients. Then add nuts and raisins.
  3. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans. I swear the original recipes say to grease and flour 4-1 lb coffee cans or 8-vegetable cans and fill half full. Now that is a hoot. Bake at 350 for about 1 hour or until firm.
