I am not a huge fan of pumpkin. I love pumpkin soup and LOOOOOOOOVE pumpkin bread but that’s about it. I am a little bit sick of soup so thought I would get creative with the excess pumpkin I have here.
Last week I posted Pumpkin Choc Chip Biscuits which are delicious. I thought I would experiment a bit today with leftover pumpkin. I present to you, “Sweet Pumpkin Loaf”. Otherwise known as “Caramel Loaf”… yes, I tricked the kiddies into eating it by calling it Caramel Loaf. They cant get enough so I’m happy to just go with that. One word for you – YUM! even I am impressed.
This has a very subtle pumpkin taste but you barely notice it due to the lovely spices used in this recipe like cinnamon and nutmeg. It is a delicious moist loaf that is so easy to whip up for morning tea, play group or lunchboxes.
You can reduce the sugar and spices in this if you wish. The less you use, the stronger the pumpkin taste so keep that in mind. You can make these into muffins if pushed for time.
For all you YIAH lovers out there, you can replace the spices with half a tablespoon of YIAH Pumpkin Pie or Gingerbread Spice.
