Pumpkin Nut Loaf

This recipe came home from school with one of our children about 30 years ago photocopied on a green letter sized sheet of paper, which I saved for many years until I finally typed it out and saved it on my computer. Here it is for you to enjoy!


2 cups of sugar
4 large eggs
1 ¼ cup vegetable oil
2 ½ cup cooked pumpkin (or canned works just as well!)
3 cups white all-purpose flour
3 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp table salt
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp ground allspice
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup golden seedless sultana raisins
1 cup chopped walnuts


Beat eggs well. Add sugar and beat. Add oil and beat. Add pumpkin and beat. Stir some flour into raisins and nuts. Sift other dry ingredients together and stir into liquid. Add raisins and nuts.

Put into greased and floured loaf pans (2 large or 3 small.) Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
