Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease the bottom of a 9 x 5 loaf pan.

In a large bowl, mix sugar, cantaloupe puree, oil, vanilla and eggs.

In a seperate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and cloves together.

Combine the two mixtures and stir in nuts. Be careful not to overmix.

This had a delightful flavor. I did need to puree and strain a whole cantalope in order to make the the 1 cup of melon puree. I'm not sure that the bread really tastes melony but it does taste good. It was a great way to get rid of an older melon beging to be eaten. -AB
