I’m coming out of hibernation for the final Secret Recipe Club reveal. I loved this club when my blog was active, so I’m happy to help it go out with a bang! This month’s reveal feels like life is coming full circle. When I first starting blogging, one of the first bloggers to comment on my posts was Cathleen from A Taste of Madness. When I got the email for my match this month to see it was Cathleen, I was thrilled! I am so impressed with how A Taste of Madness has grown and how delicious her pictures and recipes look!!!
Since it’s fall, I went with Cathleen’s Pumpkin Apple Bread! What a treat– you all should try it asap!
And if you’e been wondering what’s going on with me– follow me on instagram! I’ve been working like crazy and hanging out with our little monkey. Our little man is 10 months old and was the best Curious George ever for Halloween…and I was the Woman in the Yellow Hat. We had fun!
- 3 cups flour
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 cups sugar
- 2 cups pumpkin puree
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 large apples, peeled, cored and diced
- Servings: 2 loaves
- Difficulty: easy
Preheat the oven to 350. Prepare your baking pans by spraying with cooking spray-- I used one loaf pan and two mini-cake pans.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
In separate bowl, beat together the sugar, pumpkin, eggs, oil, apple sauce and water until fully combined.
Slowly mix in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until just combined. Fold in the diced apples. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pans.
Place the pans in the preheated oven. If you are using the 8x8 inch baking pans, bake for 50-55 minutes, and if using loaf pans, bake for 60-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
