READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Amethyst42

I am adapting this from Pumpkin Gingerbread on Allrecipies, so I can have the nutritional evaluation with whole wheat instead of white flour and brown sugar.

I wasn't sure just what to expect from a pumpkin gingerbread, however, I like both and thought it would be an interesting combo. It's exactly that, an interesting blend of flavors that works. Don't expect a gingerbread with a slight pumpkin essence or a spicy pumpkin bread. The spicing is very mild and while the pumpkin is certainly there if someone received a slice without knowing that it was I think the reaction would be "This is really good, but, what is it". It's sure quick and easy to make and mine was done in 45 mins. I made a single loaf using 1/2 a cup of Splenda brown and 1/4 cup of Splenda granulated, one whole egg and 1/4 cup of egg white, doubled the cinnamon and used 1/4 each of nutmeg and mace. The bread is lovely, moist and very nice with French Vanilla tea. Made for PAC, Spring '10.
