Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Loaf

This recipe came from cousin Aislynn's pre-school cook book. She's graduating from high school this year, so we've been able to enjoy for a long time!

Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Loaf

2 cups flour (can use part whole wheat flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 cup nuts, chopped and/or 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside. Blend eggs, pumpkin, sugar, milk and butter. Add dry ingredients and nuts/chocolate. Mix until just moistened. Pour into greased 9x5" pan. Bake at 350° for 60 minutes. Cool 10 minutes and remove from pan.

Note: I usually double this and bake in 6 mini loaf pans for 35-40 minutes. 1 1/2 times into 5 mini loaves works great as well.

Another note: Tried with 2/3 cup sugar and didn't notice any problems.
