Here's one of my favorite recipes . Pumpkins & Apples are harvest ritual at our house. Here's a simple recipe that uses both .
Pumpkin Apple Bread
(Preheat oven to 350)
3 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground cloves
1/3 tsp allspice
14.5 oz can pumpkin
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 1/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
2 apples peeled & chopped (2 cups)
Combine & mix well. Fold in apples last and divide between 2 greased loaf pans. Bake for aprox 50 minutes on lowest oven rack.
This is the basic recipe . The outline if you will. I have substituted whole grain flour , fresh squash or pumpkin for canned, reduced sugar, used honey or molasses, added nuts, seeds, raisins or dried cranberries . As long as I stayed with in the basic proportions, it always turned out great.
I'd love it if you guys would share your variations with me. Bet you've come up with things I never thought of. There's no such thing as too many cooks! Just lots of new ideas!
Looking forward to being inspired!!
