pumpkin loaf

I love baking loaves, all kinds, blueberry, gingerbread, lemon/yogurtzucchini, banana, whatever, but I saw this recipe and it hit the holiday spot.  The problem is a lot of the loaf recipes they sometime make for too bigger quantities for a household of two, and sometimes I’m just cheap enough that I don’t want to donate 3 cups of flour into one recipe.

So with some creative math and a bit of fudging here and there I came up with this one loaf recipe adapted from here.

Pumpkin loaf

1 1/2 c flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinanmon, 1/2 tsp ground ginger, 1/4 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp nutmeg

t tsp salt

2 eggs

1 c sugar

1/2 14oz can pureed pumpkin

1/2 c vegetable oil + 1/4 c water

1/2 c chopped pecans (or walnuts) 1/2 c dried cranberries

Oven 350F

Line a 8 x 4 loaf pan with parchment and grease.

Mix the dry ingredients together, combine the wet, mix in nuts and cranberries. Pour into pan, Bake 50 mins, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
