Pumpkin Apple Bread
Posted by: Annie
Can you tell we love pumpkin on this blog? Here is another delicious fall recipe to add to our rapidly growing pumpkin recipe collection. I split this recipe in half because we only have one bread pan at my house, and I did not feel like waiting in between loaves to clean up. The recipe posted below is the original, and yields two loaves.
What you will need:
3 cups flour
2 t ground cinnamon (I doubled this)
2 t baking soda
1 1/2 t salt
3 cups granulated sugar
1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
4 large eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 c apple juice or water (I used water and the apple flavor was still strong)
1 large baking apple, peeled, cored, and diced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9x5 inch loaf pans (I used Pam cooking spray meant for baking and it worked out perfectly)
Mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, eggs, oil, and water/juice. Beat the ingredients until well blended. Mix the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture until moistened. Stir in the apples, and pour into prepared bread pans.
Bake for 65-70 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove bread from pans, and continue to cool on wire racks.
