No Fear Entertaining Pumpkin Bread (2 large loaves)


2 cups unbleached all purpose flour

2 cup whole wheat flour

2 cups sugar (I used organic cane sugar)

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp gound nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp ground cloves

2 cups canned pumpkin puree

1 cup milk

4 eggs

2/3 cup butter

1 cup chopped pecans

1 cup raisins



  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • In a large mixing bowl combine 1/2 of the flours, all of the sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, pumkin, milk, eggs and butter.
  • Mix with an electric mixer on low speed until blended. Turn mixer to high and mix for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the remaining flour and mix well.
  • Stir in pecans and raisins.
  • Pour batter into 2 greased loaf pans and bake in your preheated 350° oven for 60 - 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  • Remove the bread from the pans and allow it to cool completely on the rack.
  • Cool completely before slicing and for best results wrap and store over night before slicing.
