Vegetable Quick Bread
Makes 2 loaves bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1+1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup all-vegetable shortening
2 cups shredded carrots or squash such as zucchini
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
1/2 cup chopped dates or raisins
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350F.

Combine flours, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and ginger in a large bowl. Cut shortening into dry ingredients with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in carrots, nuts and dates.

Beat eggs and milk together with a fork, add to bowl and stir only until dry ingredients are moistened. Batter will be stiff. Divide batter evenly in 2 greased 8+1/2 x 4+1/2 x 1/2-inch loaf pans. Bake at 350F for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out clear. Cool for 10 minutes in pan on a rack. Remove from pan and cool on a rack before slicing.
