2 Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice Loaf Bread

 I love The Junior League's Peace Meals! My sweet brother, Clark, gave me this cookbook for our wedding and I have really enjoyed exploring different recipes from this beautiful book!

The name of this bread is what caught my eye at first! I mean, how cute is "Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice Loaf Bread?" Don't worry, the name does not disappoint! This bread has a little bit of everything and is a perfect housewarming gift or a great teacher gift for Valentine's Day! Enjoy!
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
15 oz canned crushed pineapple, drained
3/4 cup peeled and finely grated carrots
1/2 cup golden raisins (I used regular raisins)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted 
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, spices and sugar into a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk together the molasses, egg, buttermilk, orange juice, oil, zest and vanilla; stir in the pineapple. Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in the carrots, raisins and walnuts. Pour the batter into the prepared pan; bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the bread in the pan for 5 minutes, the remove from the pan and let cool completely on a wire rack. Slice with a serrated knife.
