My pumpkin loaves should do the trick..the recipe makes two LARGE loaves. Use a medium loaf pan measuring approx: 21.5 x11.3 x6.2cm high.

Pam's Pumpkin Loaves (makes two)
Ingredients:
3 cups of castor sugar
1 cup salad/sunflower oil
4 eggs, lightly beaten
3 & 1/2 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup water
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
(tsp of spices do not need to be level - up to you, but I like spicy.)
500g pumpkin,cooked and mashed
(cut pumpkin into big chunks-leave the skin on and put into a microwave proof dish with a little water and cover with gladwrap-leave a loose corner for steam to escape. Cook for 8-9 minutes-just be careful removing the wrap-its hot!! When it is cool enough to handle, slice the skin off with a sharp paring knife).
Method:
Cream sugar and oil with electric mixer in LARGE bowl, add eggs and pumpkin,mix well. Sift dry ingredients and add alternately with the water. Grease and flour your loaf tins. When you fill them, they will be close to the top of the tin. Using a cup to get mixture into tins -gets them even. Bake at 175c for 1 & 1/2 hours. Let them stand 10 minutes before turning out. NOTE:These will rise VERY high in the tin, so don't panic. I test mine with a skewer in the middle because they sometimes need a little extra time. They freeze beautifully and they keep moist for ages too.

colbarch, try this one - I promise you it's a "really nice moist loaf".

DATE LOAF
1 cup each of dates and boiling water
1 tsp baking soda
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tbsp butter, softened
1 egg
1½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch salt

Place the dates in a bowl, then pour the boiling water over and sprinkle the baking soda over. Cover the bowl and leave until cold (overnight is ok).
Mix the brown sugar and butter, then add the egg and beat together until thick and spongy. Add the sifted flour, baking powder and salt, alternately with the date mixture. Place in a greased loaf tin.
Bake at 180°C for about 1 hour.
Variation: For a nice mixed fruit & nut loaf add, with the dates, about ½ cup sultanas and a few chopped nuts. :-))

Cold Tea Loaf ...

2 C flour
4 t baking powder
1 C brown sugar
1 C boiled tea
1 C dried fruit
1 t ginger
1/2 t cinnamon (I'm not a huge fan)

Place fruit in with the cup of boiled tea, leave for a few hours or overnight.
Next day (or later on) mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased loaf tin and cook for approx 1 hr 10 mins @ 160 deg C.
This not only freezes well but is STILL moist up to 5 days later (and oh so cheap to make!)

DUTCH APPLE CAKE

125g Butter
1 Cup Sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 Cup warm smooth as apple sauce

2 Cups Flour (plain, wholemeal or a mix of)
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon cloves

2 Diced apples
1 Cup Raisins
! Cup Macadamia nuts (or nut of choice)

Mix sugar and butter then add eggs 1 at a time.

Slowly add apple sauce and mix well.

Stir in flour and dry ingredients.

Add diced apple, raisins and nuts.

Line a baking tin and bake at 180 for approx 45 mins.

This is the most moistest cake and soft cake out!! It makes a big cake and I always double it and freeze one:)

If you have it, you can replace the Cinnamon with a dutch spice mix called "Speculaas spice" and its just as Devinne!!

My daughter came across this recipe in a magazine - really moist
Kumara & Walnut Loaf
400gr golden kumara, peeled & chopped
1½ cups self raising flour
1 tsp mixed spice
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
125gr butter, melted
¼cup milk
½ cup chopped walnuts

Cream Cheese filling:
125gr lite cream cheese @ room temp
¼ cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
Spray & line a loaf tin. First prepare cream cheese filling, by creaming the butter & sugar together till smooth. Then add egg, beating until well combined. Set aside. Cook the kumara till tender, drain & mash until smooth. You’ll need 1 cup mashed cooled kumara. Lightly blend the flour, spice & sugar in a bowl. Whisk together the eggs, butter, & milk. Stir into flour mix along with kumara & walnuts. Spoon half this mixture into prepared loaf tin. Then spread all the cream cheese filling. Finish the top by spreading on remaining kumara mixture. Bake @ 180°C for about 1 hour. Allow to cool before turning out. Cut into thick slices to serve.

For this recipe you will need the following:

226grams (the real thing, not margarine), softened
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
3 cups self raising flour
1 cup milk
2 lemons including zest and juice

Cream butter, oil and sugar, add eggs, beat until creamy and whitish. Add flour (optional 2 or 3 tbsps coconut also), add milk to make a kind of batter.
Put into a large dish, and bake 160 degrees for about 90 minutes.
Sounds like ages, but it does need it.
