I love you Pumpkin

One of my favorite things to eat in the Fall is pumpkin bread. I have been working on this recipe for a few weeks and I think I have finally figured out how to make it both moist and flavorful, in a more figure flattering way.

Here's the recipe:

3 cups whole wheat flour 

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon 

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp allspice

1 tsp ground ginger

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 15oz can pumpkin puree 

4 eggs beaten

Preheat to 350. Whisk the dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls, combine and distribute between two 8" loaf pans greased with a little cooking spray.  Bake for 45 minutes (check with a toothpick). Allow to cool for a few minutes, transfer to a cutting board, slice into it warm.  Yum. Enjoy with a heavily creamed cup of coffee in the morning listening to a podcast of "This American Life", maybe on your birthday.
