Now that pumpkins are in season, roast a small pie pumpkin and puree the flesh in a blender or food processor for this loaf cake. Otherwise, you can use canned pumpkin.
3 tablespoon oil, canola
3/4 cup(s) pumpkin, puree or homemade
1/2 cup(s) honey
3 tablespoon sugar, brown (packed)
2 egg(s) lightly beaten
1 cup(s) flour, whole-wheat (whole-meal)
1/2 cup(s) flour, all-purpose (plain)
2 tablespoon flax seeds
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon allspice, ground
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, ground
1/4 teaspoon cloves, ground
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon nuts, hazelnuts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on low speed, beat together the canola oil, pumpkin puree, honey, brown sugar
In a small bowl, whisk together the flours, flaxseed, baking powder, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the hazelnuts evenly over the top and press down gently to lodge the nuts into the batter. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 50 to 55 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn the loaf out of the pan onto the rack and let cool completely.
