Is there a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon, than baking?
Today, i made Pumpkin Bread, and it is my new favorite! It is also dairy free.
Here is the recipe, i hope you enjoy.
Original recipe is from joythebaker.com. I have modified it slightly.
Makes 2 loaves
2 cups wholemeal plain flour
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/3 cup caster sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon cloves
2 cups of pumpkin puree (approx 1/4 small boiled pumpkin)*
1/2 cup sunflower oil
1/2 cup apple puree (approx 1 1/2 apples poached & pureed)*
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup water
1 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 180C degrees & grease two loaf pans.
Mix together the flours, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, salt & spices.
In another bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, oil, apple puree, maple syrup & water.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and use a spatula to fold all the ingredients together. Make sure you scrape the sides of the bowl so that no flour is left. Fold in the walnuts, but keep some to scatter on top once in the mix is inside the pan.
Divide the dough & scatter the walnuts on top.
Bake for 45mins, or until the bread is cooked. Remove from the oven & let it rest for 10mins. Serve warm.
*Simply cut the pumpkin into small chunks & boil until soft. Hand blend until smooth. The same applies for the apple, or you can buy Apple Sauce & use this instead.
