Pumpkin AND apple....

The two flavors of fall seem to be pumpkin and apple.  How many of you have a recipe that uses both?  This one comes from the Weight Watchers Complete Cookbook.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 large egg
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 apple, peeled, cored, and grated
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F; spray a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice.  In a small bowl, beat the egg; add the buttermilk, apple, and pumpkin.  Pour over the flour mixture; stir until just blended (do not overmix).
- Spoon into the pan.  Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 1 to 1 1/4 hours.  Cool in the pan on a rack 10 minutes; remove from the pan and cool completely on the rack.  Dust with confectioners' sugar.


 This loaf can be cut into 10 nice slices.  It is good toasted, spread with a little cream cheese.:-)

We are having a beautiful fall around here!  It has been a good time for some neighborhood construction projects to continue.  The next post will be about one of those projects.

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate  your comments.


  1. It looks yummy, I will be making this, I just made pumpkin ribbon bread so I think this would be a nice follow up. Have a lovely day Nellie.

  2. This really does sound and look delicious, and I am feeling tempted to try it myself! I'm thinking warm from the oven would be hard to resist! Thanks for sharing another goodie with us!

  3. Cool!!! Combining 2 great flavors. Especially great, at this time of year.


  4. This sounds really good Nellie! I would love to try it!

  5. I always find it amazing that something with buttermilk in the recipe can still taste fantastic!
