Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
3 1/2 Cup(c)  all-purpose flour
1 Dash(ds)  solid vegetable shortening, for greasing the pans
2 Teaspoon(t)  baking soda
1 1/2 Teaspoon(t)  salt
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  baking powder
1 Teaspoon(t)  ground cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  nutmeg, preferably freshly grated
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  ground cloves
2 Cup(c)  canned pumpkin
2/3 Cup(c)  pineapple juice, orange juice, or wate
2/3 Cup(c)  solid vegetable shortening
4   large eggs
1 1/2 Cup(c)  walnuts, toasted and chopped
3/4 Cup(c)  raisins
3/4 Cup(c)  snipped dates (or more raisins, if you prefer; see note)
2/3 Cup(c)  sugar


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Grease two standard loaf pans.

Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnanlOn, nutmeg, and cloves together into a large bowl, and set it aside.

Combine the pumpkin and pineapple juice in another bowl, and set it aside.

Cream the shortening and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Reduce the speed to medium-low and add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with the pumpkin mixture in two additions, beginning and ending with the flour mixture and scraping down the bowl as necessary. Fold in the walnuts, raisins, and dates.

Divide the batter between the prerpared loaf pans and bake until a toothpick  or cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 1 hour and 10 to 20 minutes.

Transfer the pans to a wire rack and cool for 10 minutes. Then loosen the loaves by running a knife around the edges, remove them from the pans, and transfer them to the rack to cool completely.
