Cantaloupe Bread

This has a really soft orange color and looks nice with other breads on a plate. And it tastes great.

1 3/4 C. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 C. shortening
1 large egg
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
2/3 C. sugar
1 C. cantaloupe pulp

Put cantaloupe in blender on grind. Don’t overdo. Mix dry ingredients and sift 3 times. Cream sugar and shortening until fluffy. Add egg. Add cantaloupe; mix. Add flour mixture, half at a time. Beat until smooth after each addition. Turn into well greased and floured 8×4″ bread pan. Bake at 350º for 50 minutes, or until it tests done. Cool. Can serve plain or with whipped cream
