In a large mixer bowl combine *1 cup* of the flour, the brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, and ginger or cloves. Add pumpkin, milk, eggs, and shortening.
Beat with an electric mixer on low speed till blended, then on high speed for 2 minutes. Add remaining flour, beat well. Stir in nuts and raisins.
Pour batter into a greased 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 60 to 65 minutes or till a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from the pan; cool thoroughly on a wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing [I haven't found the last two steps entirely necessary, since it is absolutely delicious warm, and it holds its form even if you slice it before it's completely cooled].
