I took advantage of some extra time today due to the snow storm and did a little baking.  This bread is amazing – you’ve got to try it!  

Apple Pumpkin Bread

  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and baking powder.  In another large bowl, whisk the pumpkin, water, vanilla extract, eggs and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apples and walnuts.
  • Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 325° for 1 1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool.
