Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf

This is a rich tasting easy to make loaf. A family favourite in my house.

1/3 cup boiling water
2 Tblsp water
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 F

Combine all wet ingredients in a high speed blender.

Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well

Combine the two bowls. Mix carefully. The batter will be thick.

Add raisins if using.

Spoon into a parchment lined loaf pan.

Bake for about 55 minutes to an hour or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
