Pumpkin Recipe 3

I'd been looking at this pumpkin chai bread recipe and drooling so I made it last night for my small group.

Pumpkin Chai Bread
Adapted from Scandi Foodie

1 cup cooked and mashed pumpkin
1/2 cup light olive oil
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup orange juice
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves (I substituted ground allspice and a touch of nutmeg because I didn't have cloves)

Whisk the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Whisk together the pumpkin, olive oil, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and orange juice. Stir in the dry ingredients and the walnuts and mix well until smooth. Pour the batter in to a greased loaf tin and bake in 350F for 40-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

*And thats my new mug sweater! I'm so excited! I custom ordered it from Yellow Daisy Designs on Etsy. She was really great about working with me and giving me a custom listing (even though the color is more dandelion than marigold/mustard) I also got a matching apple jacket that I can't wait to use! And I'm packing it for my trip to Savannah this weekend. Have a great weekend!

The pumpkin chai bread sounds delicious.

I don't know if you have a Costco close by but that's where I purchase my dried cranberries. I feel like it's a good deal there. Might be worth checking out if you use them a lot.
