Dave's Original Pumpkin Molasses Bread

This is one of Dave's own recipes, and I love the dark, rich flavor of molasses in this bread. It's a rich cake, and tastes amazing considering how low it is in saturated fat. I'd call it dense and buttery, although there is no butter in it.

makes 2 loaves

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups all purpose unbleached flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup molasses
2 cups canned pumpkin
4 eggs
1 cup canola oil
3 tsp pumpkin spice
1 cup semi-sweet French chocolate truffles, chopped coarsely* (optional)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Sift together the dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl and add to dry ingredients. Add chocolate and nuts. Bake in two greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pans. Bake for about 70 minutes or until a skewer through the center comes out clean.

*If you don't know where to find these, you can use your own favorite chocolate pieces
