INGREDIENTS (yields 2 loaves):
1 15oz can pumpkin puree
*8 oz applesauce (I used unsweetened)
2/3 c water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 c sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 TBS pumpkin pie spice (recipe below)
* The original recipe calls for 1 cup of vegetable oil. I replaced the oil with applesauce. You can use either or.
Pumpkin Pie Spice:
3 tbs ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp ground allspice
1 1/2 tsp ground cloves
(Combine spices in small bowl, mix well to combine. Store in a small jar or spice container.)
Start by preheating oven to 350 F. Then grease and flour 2 loaf pans. I believe mine are 9x5.
|One glass and one metal..They both work!|
In a bowl, combine pumpkin, eggs, applesauce (or oil), water, vanilla, and sugar. Mix well using an electric mixer or stand mixer if you like to get all fancy.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice using a whisk.
Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and stir until well blended.
Pour batter into prepared pans evenly. Bake for 60 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
I gave one loaf to the hubby to take to work and he's says it's a big hit with the co-workers. Nothing like a bunch of dirty manly men standing around eating pumpkin bread! This definitely is my go-to snack with a tall glass of milk. Delicious!!
