Pumpkin Loaf


While you are all sitting around drooling over this, I'm off in the woods without phone/internet/tv access. Why you might ask?? To meet up with my mom/dad/sister/BIL(brother-in-law)& nephew! They all live down by DC so we are meeting up half way for a long weekend! There will be baking for sure, so stay tuned to see what we all come up with.

Now, lets bring on the pumpkin!!! I must say I love anything involving pumpkin, and to me, it doesn't matter what time of the year it is, I'm always craving pumpkin. I made this loaf to bring with us to a friends house for the superbowl. Said friend isn't into using splenda so I made sure to leave it out of this recipe. Instead I used organic sucanat compliments of Wholesome Sweeteners.


Pumpkin Bread
recipe by steph chows

In a medium bowl whisk together dry (then set aside):
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt

In a large bowl cream together:
3 tbs butter (softened)
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup sucanat

Then beat in:
2 eggs (one at a time)
1/3 cup fat free plain yogurt (look at the label, buy a brand with the least amount of sugar in it)
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Gently mix dry into wet and pour into a greased 8.5 x 4 loaf pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about an hour, or until a tester comes out clean.

Great recipe! I love pumpkin, and use Sucanat all the time - great unrefined sub for brown sugar.
