  • Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves.
  • In a large bowl beat the sugar, shortening, and eggs until light and fluffy.
  • Add the pumpkin and beat to incorporate.
  • Add the sifted dry ingredients in 3 portions, alternating with the milk.
  • Do not beat any more than necessary to combine the ingredients.
  • Fold in the optional nuts, raisins, or dates.
  • Pour into a greased 9 x 5 inch (22 x 12 cm) loaf pan and bake in a preheated 350F (180C) oven for about 1 hour, until the loaf has shrunk from the sides of the pan and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
