Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater


I LOVE Starbucks Pumpkin Loaf. I could, and often do, eat it every day. But I also could make it myself. I found a recipe that tastes pretty darn close to Starbucks’ recipe. The only problem is it is loaded with butter and sugar.
I also made pumpkin frozen yogurt. A little strange but healthier than our usual fare.  Puh-lease tell me you have a healthy, but yummy pumpkin bread recipe. Or a fool-proof recipe for frozen yogurt?

  1. Here’s the recipe I found:

    1 cup margarine
    3 cups sugar
    4 eggs
    3 1/3 cups flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon nutmeg
    4 teaspoons ginger
    1/2 teaspoon cloves
    2/3 cup water
    2 cups canned pumpkin
    1 cup nuts (optional)

    1. Cream together margarine, sugar, and eggs.
    2. Combine all dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture alternately with water and pumpkin.
    3. Beat well.
    4. Pour into 2 well greased loaf pans.
    5. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minute or until toothpick comes out clean.

    (I actually made muffins and baked them for about 25ish minutes.)
