2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup canned pumpkin

1/4 cup canola oil

Heat oven to 350º F. Lightly coat a 5-by-9-inch loaf pan with vegetable cooking spray. Combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the dates, then the pumpkin, milk, oil, and eggs until well blended. Pour into pan. Bake 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Turn onto a wire rack.

VARIATIONS: Substitute 1 cup golden or brown raisins for the dates or add 3/4 cup pecans or macadamia nuts.
