Number of Servings: 12


    2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
    3/4 cup sugar, plus some to sprinkle on top
    2 large eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    finely grated zest of 1 orange
    1 cup pumpkin puree
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup 1% milk
    1 cup chopped pecans
    1/2 cup rasins


1. Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a 5x9 loaf pan and set aside.

2. In to a medium sized bowl, sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices together.

3. Use an electric mixer in a large bowl to cream butter on high speed, gradually adding sugar. Beat the eggs in one at a time, beating well after adding each one. Blend in vanilla, lemon zest, and pumpkin.

4. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream and milk. Blend half of this into the pumpkin mixture. Blend half of the dry mixture into the creamed mixture, then add the last half of the liquid, then the rest of the dry, blending after each addition until just smooth. Fold in pecans.

5. Use a rubber spatula to scrape batter into prepared pan, smoothing top with a spoon. Sprinkle top generously with sugar.

6. Bake on center rack in preheated oven until a tester inserted deep into the center of the loaf comes out clean, around 70 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edges to loosen, then turn bread out onto the rack. Allow to cool before slicing. Wrap bread as soon as it is cooled.
