Yay! Pumpkin season has arrived, and we’re kicking it off with pumpkin bread. Delightfully moist with a velvety crumb and heavenly spice, pumpkin bread is a wonderful seasonal treat for breakfast, snacking or dessert. These loaves are not too sweet, and the combination of Kashmiri Garam Masala and Grand Marnier is delicious. The recipe makes two loaves and conveniently uses a single can of pumpkin purée. They come together quick and easy and you can mix up the spice and liquor pairings in all kinds of creative ways.

Pumpkin Bread

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour, all purpose or gluten free
  • 2 tablespoons ground Kashmiri Garam Masala
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 15 oz. can of pumpkin purée or 1 3/4 cups homemede
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup melted coconut oil, slightly cooled
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
  • 1/3 cup apple cider

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease the insides of two loaf pans, or line them with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, Kashmiri Garam Masala, salt and baking soda.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients.
  4. Add the pumpkin mixture to the flour mixture and stir together gently until the ingredients are just combined.
  5. Transfer the batter into the two loaf pans and bake for 50-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean.
  6. Place the pans on a wire rack to cool, and then remove the loaves from the pans and enjoy!

    Do you think your Sri Lankan curry blend would work in this recipe in place of the Garam Masala?

    • Sherrie says:

      I don’t see why not. What I would do is to make the batter without the curry, add about half of amount of spices that the recipe calls for, then taste the batter. If you can’t taste much of the curry, then add the rest of that amount. Remember – there are chiles in the Sri Lankan Curry, so tasting the batter will be key to make sure that it’s not too spicy. (Although that would be good, too.) I’ve used the Kashmiri Curry in making pumpkin pie, so that one would be good, as well. Any spice or blend that goes well with pumpkin or squash would work.
