Perfect hearty fall treat!
15 oz can pumpkin (approx 2 cups) (not pumpkin pie filling!)
1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup wheat germ (when I tried it without the wheat germ it didn’t turn out)
1- 1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 1/4 cup applesauce or orange puree
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp allspice
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp nutmeg
I just blend all the wet ingredients and then throw the dry ingredients on top and stir just till smooth.
Makes 3 loaves (bake at 350 for approx 40-50 minutes in greased pans.) Or lots and lots of muffins (bake for 20ish minutes, can’t remember, sorry!).
The orange puree is just 1 sweet potato and 3 large carrots peeled, diced and cooked till soft, then blended until smooth (add some water when necessary). You can use it in spaghetti sauce, french toast, muffins, etc.
