Pumpkin Spice Latte Bread

picture487

You can smell it, can’t you?  The pumpkin, I mean, mingled with warm spices and a touch of milk and coffee.  There’s something about autumn that makes this flavor combination simply irresistible.  It’s a good thing this bread freezes well… you can double the recipe and freeze a loaf to save for a quick breakfast, or to serve alongside a hearty winter soup.

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup white flour

1 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cardamom

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup very strong coffee

1/3 cup all natural applesauce

Step 1) Combine all dry ingredients in a small mixing bowl and set aside.

Step 2) In a second large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, eggs, milk, coffee, applesauce, oil, and Kahlua.

Step 3) Slowly blend dry ingredients into wet ingredients.  Stir until just blended; it’s OK if there are a few lumps.
