Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup pecan pieces

Method

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.

Sift flour, baking soda and powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together into a large bowl. Toss to make sure everything combines well.

In a separate bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, milk and beaten eggs. Stir well.

Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin. Do not stir.

Add the oil and the pecans.

Now stir until everything is just moistened through. The batter will be lumpy, so be careful not to over mix.

Coat 2 mini-loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.

Fill both pans and bake for 45 minutes.

Cool before slicing.
