1 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. ginger

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease (not oil) and flour bottoms only of two 9x5 or 8x4-inch loaf pans.  In large bowl, blend first 5 ingredients.  Beat 1 minute at medium speed.  Add remaining ingredients; blend at low speed until moistened.  Beat 1 minute at medium speed.  pour batter into prepared pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 60-75 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool 5 minutes; remove from pans.  Cool completely.
