Apple Pumpkin Bread


I made this for an Obama Calling Party. The people need their sweets.

This is a quick bread. Quick breads are yummy and generally sweet. This one is delicious. It makes two. Which is good to know before you start to double the recipe because you need two and then realize that you are making four. just saying.

Mix Wet Ing.s:
3/4 C. veg. oil
2 1/4 C. Sugar (i used a mix of organic cane and brown)
1 15oz can pumpkin (tj organic is good)
4 large eggs

In another bowl, mix Dry Ing.s:
3 C. Flour
1/4 t. salt
1.4 t. cinnamon
the recipe calls for allspice, nutmeg, and cloves,
i did a mix of: ginger, nutmeg, and cardamon

Add dry to wet and then fold* in 2 peeled, cored, chopped apples.

pour into two greased loaf pans.
top with:
1 T. flour
5 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1 T. flour mixed together with your fingers.
actually, i doubled this before i realized about the two-- and it was just enough. so double.

Bake apx. 1 hour in 350* oven.

*fold: pour apples in. take a spatula and slice down with the edge through the center of the batter. slide the spatula to the side and pull batter up over the top of the apples. repeat, rotating the bowl until the apples are gently combined. As a rule, we don't want to over mix batters so that they will not get tough. so, folding is a gently way to introduce new ingredients. tips from tasha.
