Originally posted 11/1/17

Ingredients (Yield: 1 loaf)

1 1/2 cups of flour

1 cup of sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 1/2  tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin puree

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup water

1/2 cup applesauce

1 cup chopped nuts (I’m using Walnuts)


Step 0.5: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of a 13×9 casserole dish or the baking dish of your choice.

Step 1: Mix all of your dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt) together in a large bowl.

Step 2: Add your wet ingredients (pumpkin, applesauce, vanilla, oil, water) to your dry ingredients and mix well to incorporate all of the flour mixture.

Step 3: Add your nuts and stir briefly to incorporate.

Step 4: Pour your batter into your greased pan and spread evenly.

Step 5: Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown on top and a skewer or toothpick poked into the center comes out clean.

Step 6: Cool slightly or all the way before serving. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
