PUMPKIN BREAD



 Try out this spiced pumpkin bread with the flavours of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice powders. I am sure you are going to love it.  This is the only way I can make my family eat pumpkin as no one likes to eat it in a curry form or even soups.

Ingredients:
All purpose flour/maida .. 2 cups
Whole wheat flour ....... 1 & 1/2 cups
Sugar ..................... 2 cups
Baking soda .......... 2 tsps
Baking powder .... 1 tsp
Salt ..................... 1 tsp
Ground cinnamon ... 1 tsp
Ground nutmeg ...... 1 tsp
All spice powder ..... 1 tsp
Ground cloves ........ 1/2 tsp
Pumpkin puree ....... 15 oz (about 2 cups)
Milk ........................ 1 cup
Eggs ....................... 3
Oil ....................... 1/2 cup


Method:
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Grease 2 loaf pans ( 9 x 5 )


3. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and spices. Mix well until blended.

4. In another bowl, stir together pumpkin puree, milk, eggs and oil. Use hand blender to mix. Add the flour mix to this mixture until well blended.

5. Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pans. Bake for about 40-45 minutes. ( the temperature and time differs in the ovens depending on the size. So keep a check)

6. Cool them for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan. Again cool them further for 1 hour before slicing.
PS: If you want to make only one loaf, use half the measurements given above.
