  2. Stir together pumpkin, sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into pans.
  3. Bake 8-inch loaves 50 to 60 minutes, 9-inch loaf 1 hour 10 minutes to 1 hour 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes.

Success
Greasing just the bottoms of the pans helps form a gently rounded top. If the sides are greased, edges of the loaf may have ridges.
Variation
Go ahead and leave the raisins out if you don't like them. The bread will still be delicious!
