3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 eggs, beaten
1 pkg Crown Spice (available for purchase at Gramercy Mansion)
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 tsp rum extract (vanilla can be substituted)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup water

Cream sugar and oil.
Add eggs, water, pumpkin, rum extract, and mix well.
Add Crown Spice and mix well.
Combine in another bowl flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Mix dry ingredient, a little at a time, into wet ingredients, mixing well after each addition. Stir in nuts. Pour into 9x5 greased and floured bread pan. GREASE ONLY THE BOTTOM OF THE PAN. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Recipe can be double for 2 pans. Recipe can be baked in mini-loaf pans for gifts. Baking time will vary 30-40 minutes. Bread is better if baked the day before serving - the spice flavor develops further. Bread will be moist and heavy in texture.
