Pumpkin Bread – Great recipe for freezing

I found an amazing recipe for pumpkin bread in a Cooking Light magazine (November 2008 page 176) that the whole family loves. It is very moist and it freezes great.

Ingredients

3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup flaxseed
2 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 canola oil
2/3 cup honey beer (room temperature; NOTE: I use a dark beer if I do not have honey)
1/2 cup egg substitute + 2 eggs (NOTE: I use 4 eggs instead of the egg substitute)
1 can pumpkin (14-15 oz)

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Combine flour, salt and next 4 ingredients (through pumpkin pie spice) in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk
  3. Combine water and flaxseed in a small bowl
  4. Place sugar and next 4 ingredients (through eggs) in a large bowl and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add flaxseed mixture and pumpkin, beat at low-speed until blended. Add flour mixture, beat just until combined. Divide the batter between two 9×5 inch loaf pans coated with cooking spray. (NOTE: We use silicon pans and do not require spray….also for taste you can opt for a greased time with butter).
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in the center and comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in the pan, then remove and place on wire rack.
  6. To freeze, wait until cold, place into a Ziploc bag and store for up to two months.

I think the flavor of this loaf fresh, is better the second day. Serve by slicing the loaf – great as for afternoon tea/snack.
