With Halloween at the end of the week, we are wondering “what to do with all those pumpkins”!
How about some sweet Pumpkin spice bread!!! they also make wonderful “mini”loaves for gifts!
Let me know how yours turn out in the comments below!!!
2 cups Whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups pumpkin purée
1/2 cup butter (melted)
1/2 cup applesauce
Grease and flour two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, sugar, salt, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, stir together the pumpkin, applesauce and butter.
Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; add pumpkin mixture. Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 1 hour, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
Makes 2 loaves of pumpkin bread.
