Cantaloupe Nut Bread

1/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup mashed ripe cantaloupe, drained
1/2 chopped nuts
Small box raisins (optional)

In a mixing bowl, cream shortening & sugar. Beat in egg. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with cantaloupe until blended ( mixture will appear curdled). Fold in nuts. Transfer to a greased 8 x 4 x 2 loaf pan. Bake at 350 deg. for 55-60 min. or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 min. before removing from pan to wire rack.
