How I LOVE fall! It is my very favorite season. One of my favorite things to see is the beautiful yellow, red and orange leaves blowing by on a sunny day. I so enjoy the pumpkin patch, decorating and of course Halloween!! Its even more special when you have a little one to share it with.

Every year, I make pumpkin bread. It is delicious, healthy and my own recipe.

Pumpkin Bread - Makes 2 loaves
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cup dark brown sugar (I use 1/2 raw sugar and 1/2 brown sugar)
  • 2 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. nutmeg
  • 1/2 t. ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 cups pureed pumpkin
  • 4 eggs

Combine dry ingredients. Combine applesauce, pumpkin and eggs seperately and add to dry. Stir just until combined. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes.

  • 1/2 - 1T. unsalted butter (optional)
  • cinnamon & sugar mixture (optional)

Melt butter and brush over loaves. Sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar.
