Holiday Pumpkin Bread
15 oz. canned pumpkin or 2 cups home cooked pumpkin
1 cup light olive oil
2/3 cup water
3 cups Sucanat
3 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 t. baking soda
1 ½ t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
½ t. cloves
¼ t. ginger
In a large bowl mix the pumpkin, eggs, olive oil, and water together. Add the Sucanat and blend well. In a smaller bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. Mix the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture and stir until just blended.
At this point you can pour this batter into 3 loaf pans or into several mini-loaf pans for gift giving. I have a mini-loaf pan that is similar to a muffin pan only it has 8 little loaf shapes. I used this recipe and was able to make 16 of these mini-loaves.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes if using a basic loaf pans or slightly less (say 45 minutes) for the mini-loaf pans.
