Applesauce pumpkin bread

Ingredients

  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
  • 3 cups sugar *see notes
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, sugar, applesauce, water, and eggs.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and stir until blended.
    Pour into bread or cupcake pans (will make 3 medium loafs or 36 cupcakes). Bake at 350 for 45 to 55 minutes for bread, 25 to 35 minutes for muffins, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Notes

*This can seem like a lot of sugar, I know! Keep in mind this recipe makes 3 loaves, but if it still feels like too much sugar for you, some readers have reported that they cut the amount of sugar in half (or even as low as 1 cup) for the whole recipe. I have not tried it this way but some people have preferred it with less sugar.
