Pumpkin Nut Bread
« on: November 13, 2012, 08:38:08 PM »
I tried this today. It was great hot, better cooled off! I put butter on mine. It would be good with whipped cream or cream cheese frosting, too.

Pumpkin Nut Bread

 cooking spray
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
48 drops ZERO (or 1 cup xylitol)
2 eggs
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder (I used a mixture of ginger, cardamom, cloves, ground fennel, pinch cayenne pepper - and didn't measure - prob 1/8 t ea. I'll put a recipe for Chinese 5-spice powder below)
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
2 cups almond flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts

1.Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2.Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
3.Mix butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
4.Whisk in eggs one at a time until combined.
5.Whisk in the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, Chinese five-spice powder, and allspice until combined.
6.Stir flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda into the pumpkin mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in chopped walnuts.
7.Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
8.Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.

1 tsp. ground Szechwan pepper
1 tsp. ground star anise
1-1/4 tsp. ground fennel seeds
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
