Pumpkin Bread

I have a great banana bread recipe and a kind of crappy pumpkin bread recipe. Can I substitute a can of pumpkin and some spices and use the ratios for the banana bread (i.e. the flour, sugar, shortening)? For spices nutmeg, cinnamon, maybe some cloves? Or maybe just buy pumpkin pie spice (I saw that at Trader Joe's last night).

Any suggestions. I have two cans of pumpkin, a new loaf pan, and I need to redeem myself after the last disaster.

Oh, and do raisins need to be reconstituted to be put in bread? They were like little rocks.

Okay, I think I may see the error of my ways here. This is almost my banana bread recipe and I put too many raisins. Although, I think I need fresher raisins too.

Raisins and pumpkin sounds like a sweet combination. Add an icing too. Something like buttercream might be good.
