Classic fall flavors of pumpkin and pecans make this from-scratch bread perfect for the season. It’s delicious when still warm from the oven, but it makes for a nice gift, too. Connie Thomas — Jensen, Utah

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3-1/3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the pumpkin, sugar, milk, egg whites, oil and applesauce until well blended. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, allspice and salt; gradually beat into pumpkin mixture until blended. Stir in pecans.
  2. Transfer to two 9x5-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
