Easy, Healthy Pumpkin Bread (YUMMY)

Posted by admin on Nov 20, 2009 in Delicious Recipes Only |

Hi Everyone:  

I’ve gotten some requests to post recipes so I thought I would share some favorites with you.  Today’s recipe is healthy and easy Pumpkin Bread.  Thanks to my devilish friend Lesley for sharing it with me (by the way, she has her own children’s clothing business at www.cheekybanana.com check it out as the clothes are beautiful and ever-lasting).

Feel free to share any recipes you want to as well.  You can email them to me at swatibharteey@rcn.com  and I will post them (crediting you of course) or leave it in a comment.

Now this Pumpkin Bread gets GOLD STAR rating from me. Why?  Well, my rating scale goes like this:

 GOLD: Healthy, easy, tastes great AND my daughter eats it (so I assume all kids will)!
SILVER: I love it, my daughter doesn’t, but I still make it for me…may or may not be totally healthy, but likely to be easy because it’s from *me*.
BRONZE:  Probably means it’s gooey and chocolately and not so good for you…and that’s why it’s a favorite ANYWAY. 
ALL ELSE: Will not be posted on this site!

My scale is not an exact science :-). 

 Ingredients first:
2 bread pans (8 inch bread loaf pans; I buy the aluminum ones))

1 14 oz can of condensed milk

2.5 cups of flour (you can use up to a half cup of wheat flour if you want to…after that, it’s too “wheaty” for my taste)

½ cup of brown sugar (not bad for 1 loaves)

¾ cup of Wheat Germ (very good for you)

1 teaspoon ginger powder

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

1 cup of Pure Pumpkin (when buying a can, make sure you get PURE pumpkin, not pumpkin Pie filling; sometimes I put in more than a cup)

5 tablespoons of butter

1 egg

Walnuts or pecans if you want, I don’t bother

What to do with all that stuff…

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Put everything on that list up there into a large bowl and mix it up! (if you have the patience, mix the dry ingredients first so they are blended, then add the wet ones.
  3. If you have Pam Cooking Spray, spray it into your pans (nothing bad happens if you don’t have Pam)
  4. Bake for 60-70 minutes.
  5. Hide 1 loaf from the rest of your family.  Trust me.
  6. I like to drench each piece in butter before I eat it.

Let me know how it comes out!

Happy cooking – Swati
