Welcome to Val’s kitchen!
Today we are making a pumpkin loaf.
2 cups flour (I like to use 1 whole wheat, 1 all purpose)
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg – to taste (1 tsp each approx)
2 cups brown sugar
¾ cup butter (replace with 2-5% plain yogurt for lower fat)
1 can pumpkin or 1 ½ cups fresh pumpkin puree
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds roasted (can substitute walnuts or pecans)
Grease a loaf pan
Preheat oven to 350 C
In a small mixing bowl, mix together all dry ingredients
In a large bowl beat sugar and butter (yogurt) until just mixed
Add eggs 1 at a time, beating after each
Add pumpkin puree and mix
Slowly add the dry ingredient mixture beating slowly
Pour mixture into loaf pan
Top with pumpkin seeds (push them gently into top of mixture to avoid them falling off )
Om nom nom!
