Recipes for kitchen-prone SAS ladies

Now that the cold weather seems to be here to stay, I have found myself more and more in the mood to cook. I don't know how many other SAS ladies out there share this inclination, but I love trying new recipes and if anyone has any we should share the delectable delicacies with one another.

Now please don't make it to complicated, as I do seem to be rather accident prone in the kitchen. A few weeks ago I burned a nice hole in my thumb and I once threw an oven mit into the oven without thinking about what I was doing. (Yes, it caught on fire.) I think I was so overwhelmed when my bread came out nicely that I just tossed the mit in a fit of enthusiasm. So yes, this bread is very good. Try it at your own risk.

2 cups flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup currants
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
2 eggs, beaten

Heat oven to 350 deg. Lightly coat a 5x9" loaf pan w/ vegetable oil. Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder,baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Stir in currants, then pumpkin, milk, oil, eggs and blend well. Pour into pan. (I like to pour honey and sugar on the top and slit it down the middle to look extra pretty) Bake 50 minutes or until a toothpick poked into loaf comes out clean. Set it on a rack to cool.
(I always find that it takes longer to cook and the toothpick never seems to be clean, so just give it a while and see how it comes out)
