Golden Loafs!!

Loved the golden hue of these Sugar-free Pumpkin Bread Loaf ! Healthy loaf with olive oil & wholemeal flour used . This is the first time I did not add any sugar in my bakes, I believed the natural sweetness of the pumpkin will attribute sweetness to this healthy loaf so I omit the sugar completely from the original recipe :) I've made 2 loaves, one for my in-laws whom are diabetic and the other one with raisins added for our own.

Ingredient (makes 1 loaf)
  • 200gm pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 125gm cake flour
  • 80gm wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 1/3 cup walnut, chopped
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  1. Sift cake flour, wholemeal flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon powder, ginger powder & nutmeg powder into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre.
  2. Combine pumpkin puree, eggs, olive oil, milk, salt & vanilla essence. Mix evenly.
  3. Pour the liquid mixture into the well. Fold in gently till mixture is evenly mixed. Do not over mixed. Stir in walnuts & raisins.
  4. Pour batter into lined loaf pan and bake in preheated oven at 180 deg cel for 50mins. Cool in pan for 10mins before unmoulding. Cool on rack completely before slicing to serve.
