Ready in 45 minutes

I make this recipe as bread during the holidays or as muffins for a treat anytime.


3 1/3 cups Flour; all purpose, sifted
2 teaspoon Baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Nuts; chopped (optional)
4 ea Eggs
1 1/2 cups Pumpkin; canned
1 cup Applesauce
2/3 cup Water
2 tablespoon Butter; (optional for topping)
2 tablespoon Sugar; (optional for topping)
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon; (optional for topping)

Original recipe makes 16



Sift dry ingredients into large mixer bowl. Quickly add remaining liquid ingredients. Mix on medium speed only until dry ingredients are moistened. Bake in two greased 9x5x3 pans in preheated 350 oven for one hour. Let cool 5 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack.

Optional: While warm, brush with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Note: This recipe originally called for 1 cup oil instead of the applesauce. You can make almost any baking recipe lower fat by substituting applesauce for the fat (oil or butter).

Very tastey! Added more pumpkin in place of the water. Probably added a bit too much, came out a tad spongy. Also added pumpkin seeds.

This was really good and my husband loved it.

This was my first time ever making bread. I used half the ingredients since I only have one baking pan. I had baked for 15 minutes before I realized I forgot the walnuts. I took the dish out, added them in and kinda pushed them down and continued baking for 45 minutes. It turned out perfectly fine, and was delicious.

I cut this recipe in half because I only had half of the pumpkin on hand, which may or may not have affected the final product. My family ate it but didn't rave about it. I probably won't make this recipe again, but for those who want a good low-fat pumpkin bread, I'd recommend trying this one!
