Ingredients:

  • 1 cup canned or cooked and pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Ener-G egg replacer for 2 eggs
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Preparation:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 inch bread pan.

Whisk together the sugar, pumpkin, applesauce, water and egg replacer and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring well to combine. Pour into prepared pan, and sprinkle a bit of extra sugar and spices on top if desired (optional).

Bake for about one hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the pumpkin bread comes out clean. Serve your pumpkin bread warm with vegan margarine or non-dairy cream cheese.

Makes 8 fat-free slices.

This bread doesn't bake and it doesn't even taste very good. If you decide you want to make this i pity you beyond comprehension. This gets a 1 out of 5 because I'm nice
