Pumpkin Bread

Are you tired of seeing pumpkin yet?  This will probably be the first and only time a pumpkin recipe appears on this blog this season.  However, THIS recipe is one of the best ones.

The key ingredient is: water.  I also halved the sugar and subbed half of the oil with unsweetened applesauce.

The loaf served as breakfast for my sister when she was a new mom.  I also brought it to a potluck recently because it whips up quickly and contains readily-available ingredients.  I'm sure it'd make a great festive snack, if you can practice portion control.  It's not too sweet and quite moist.

And yes, pie plates make perfectly good bakeware. =)

  1. I've been on a pumpkin bread kick lately. I add extra cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice to mine because I like it extra spicy. I think I like it more than pumpkin pie (which I LOVE).

  3. That loaf has a beautiful crumb and looks like it was light and delicious. Very nice, and I love the bakeware! That is great improvisation, something I could see Alton Brown doing! :)
