I like to double this recipe so I can use the WHOLE can of canned pumpkin and I end up with TWO loaves instead of one. : )
SIFT together and set aside:
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
COMBINE and mix until all is well blended:
1 cup solid pack canned pumpkin
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup softened butter
Now, add the sifted dry ingredients to this moist mixture and stir well to incorporate.
Add 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Bake in a greased 9x5x3" loaf pan at 350-degrees for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Makes 1 loaf, and it freezes well.

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)
You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.
You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...
