(This recipe comes from “Healthy Meals For Less,” by Jonni McCoy. One slice of Pumpkin Bread costs 9 cents.)
What’s In It
15 oz. can of pumpkin
1/4 C. maple syrup
2 TBS oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 C. flour
1/2 C. brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1/3 C. raisins or chocolate chips if you like (I used…guesses?… CHOCOLATE)
How To Make It
Place pumpkin, syrup, egg, oil, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and mix to blend. Don’t over mix.
In a separate mixing bowl, blend together the rest of the ingredietns. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, and mix until blended. Add raisins or chocolate chips.
Pour into a gread 9×4 loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until a toothpick tests clean in the center. Mine was gooey. It was divine.
Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool for 10-15 minutes. Then remove the bread from the pan and let it cool completely on a rack. Slice and serve.
