Pumpkin Gingerbread

Will there ever be a lack of yummy pumpkin recipes? I hope not. Each year, I seem to find new ones to try and I am never disappointed. Especially not with this delicious bread - pumpkin with lots of fragrant spices, including abundant ginger, makes for a wonderful (and easy!) quick bread that is a special breakfast treat (or anytime of day treat).

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, and yogurt

and beat until smooth. Add the water and mix well. Add the pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon,



and cloves and beat well. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, and mix just until all ingredients are incorporated. Transfer batter to two greased loaf pans.

Bake for about an hour or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the bread comes out clean.

Cool in the pan on a wire rack for about a half hour, then remove from the pan and allow to cool completely.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, yogurt and eggs; beat until smooth. Add water and beat until well blended. Mix in pumpkin, ginger, allspice, cinnamon, and cloves.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, soda, salt, and baking powder. Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and blend just until all ingredients are incorporated. Divide batter between 2 greased 9x5 loaf pans.
