Per your request

My cute little loaf pan is a gift from my mom. It's Le Creuset and she got it at TJ Maxx for a great deal. In fact, I have several bakeware pieces she's gotten for me and I love them all.

The recipe is from my Healthy Cooking magazine (my favorite recipe magazine).

Makeover Pumpkin Spice Bread

With less than half the fat and just one-fourth the calories of the original recipe, more people can feel good about eating this fall favorite. Heidi Figiel - Bridgeport, W. Virginia




TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling


  • 2-1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (I used whole wheat flour, and you couldn't even tell)
  • 1-1/3 cups cake flour (I didn't have cake flour, so I just used bread flour)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup canola oil


In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, pumpkin, buttermilk, applesauce and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Transfer to two 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 45-55 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).

This has nothing to do with this post but the one above. All I see is a picture of you. No title, no words. Is that what it's supposed to be??? Just wondering if it's just my computer :)
