Pumpkin Bread

Delight in this indulgent way to celebrate the fall season

(Contributed by a friend of ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association, Inc.)

Could there be a more perfect pumpkin preparation to celebrate autumn? We think not.


Ingredients:

  • 6.5 oz egg whites, lightly beaten (For a vegan version, you can substitute canned coconut milk [6.5 fl oz, or a little more than 200 mL] in place of the egg whites, or use an egg replacement product [follow instructions on the box to substitute for the equivalent of 4 whole eggs])

  • 1 cup canola oil

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 15-oz can 100% pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)

  • 3 1/2 cups flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 2 tsp baking soda

  • 2 tsp non-iodized/non-sea salt

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp nutmeg

  • 1 tsp allspice

  • 2/3 cup water

  • 1 cup add-ins of choice (optional; chopped unsalted walnuts, LID-safe chocolate chips, raisins, dates, or a combination)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Grease three 2-lb loaf pans.

  3. Combine egg whites (or coconut milk or the egg replacement), oil, sugar, and pumpkin in a bowl or mixer.

  4. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients.

  5. Add dry mixture to pumpkin mixture and blend in water.

  6. Pour into prepared loaf pans and bake for 1 hour or until done.
