    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    2 tablespoons milk
    2 eggs, slightly beaten

      I have a pumpkin bread recipe similar to this, it is a canning jar recipe from Kerr Glass. I used to make & can in jars for Bob to take on the road with him, keeps for about 6 months in the jars. I'd imagine you could substitute with anything you choose.
