Recipe#16: pumpkin bread


“Stop hating, start baking”


200g (1½ cups) all-purpose flour

1t baking soda

1t baking powder

2t ground cinnamon

1t ground cloves

1t salt

2 eggs

200g (1 cup) brown sugar

300g (1¼ cups) pumpkin puree (*)

120ml oil

60ml orange juice

(*) Cut the pumpkin in moderately large pieces and put them in the oven (with the peel) until soft. Let the pumpkin cool and then mash into a puree.


In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cloves. In another bowl whisk the eggs, sugar, pumpkin, oil and orange juice. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix just until combined. At this point feel free to add chocolate chips, nuts or almonds according to your preferences…

Pour the batter into a medium loaf pan and bake for 1 hour at 180° (350F).

Let cool before enjoying this perfect tea break!
