Ingredients

1 (15-ounce) can unsweetened pumpkin
1 cup CRISCO Oil
3 cups sugar
3 large eggs
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins
CRISCO No-Stick Cooking Spray

Preparation

Beat first 11 ingredients at low speed with an electric mixer 1 to 2 minutes or until blended. Stir in walnuts and raisins. Pour batter into 2 (9- x 5-inch) dark, nonstick loafpans coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 350° for 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool loaves in pans on wire racks 15 minutes; remove from pans, and let cool completely. Drizzle bread with Orange Glaze, if desired.

Note: For light, shiny loafpans, bake 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Holiday Pumpkin Muffins: Spoon batter evenly (about 1/4 cup each) into lightly greased muffin pans. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from pans immediately; cool on wire racks. Makes 3 dozen.
