Megans Cookin: Homemade With Love

Homemade With Love

I lost my beloved pumpkin bread recipe. I know it will show up someday. Probably some warm morning when the daffodils are pushing their way up through the warming fertile grounds of spring. But I want it now.
Its a crisp Autumn morning and the candle flames are dancing as a cool breeze meanders through the house. Its my dear friends birthday and I need to make her pumpkin bread.

I had to go surfing for another recipe.

I found a few good looking recipes on other blogs but didn't bother to bookmark. Now I can't find them for the life of me. That will teach me. I need to be more organized. But I did come across 5 different recipes at All recipes and I picked this one.

Why this one you ask, because it used applesauce instead of oil.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Just mix:
1 cup applesauce
4 eggs
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1/4 cup water

3 cups sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp.salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder

As a pumpkin lover, I can't believe I ran out of Pumpkin Pie Spice.
But never fear, instead I just mixed in:

1/4 tsp. Cloves
1/4 tsp. Allspice
1/4 tsp. Cardamom
Fresh grated Nutmeg till my little heart desired!

Now is the time to add:
3 1/2 cups flour

Any nuts you might wish.
(I don't like nuts in my pumpkin bread.)

Grease 2 large loaf pans, (or 3 medium)
and bake for 50-60 minutes

The smell of Fall is in the air and all is well with me.
Time to wrap and deliver.

Do you like my pumpkin loaf pan?
It's from Williams-Sonoma

All dressed up and ready to go.

Happy Birthday Ranae

I think you should make another loaf of Pumkin bread, and ship it to your brother in Sacramento: I just so happen to have his

In fact, I think you should just do it anonysmously. He won't have a clue where it came from. I know he goes to your blog once in a while, but he's kinda slow, so you should hurry and so it before he reads any of your blog... (he's slow, but not stupid...)

I love pumpkin bread, but I don't have a go-to recipe. How did you like this one? How did it compare to your normal one?

That loaf pan makes the bread look so beautiful! I'm going to have to purchase myself one of those. I can't wait to start making pumpkin bread!
