Hello again! ;)

We are experiencing the most gorgeous weather in Southern Ontario right now. Crystal clear blue skies and daily highs of about 10 Celsius. This is very welcomed after a couple months of rain, gloom, and doom! I find that I am looking forward to my outdoor runs so much lately!

Despite the weather making me want to lay outside with a beach towel in my swimsuit, I had a really productive start to my week yesterday, cranking through my orders and also finalizing the new Glo Bar flavour, nutritional info, and labels. It was a great start to the week and I hope I can keep this momentum going.

Today, I am working on a Glo Bar donation for a charity volleyball tournament that is this weekend and I also have a meeting late this afternoon about a project coming up.

But right now, I bake.

I take photographs.

And I then tell you about it.

It’s basically like an adult version of show and tell, really.

[No, not that kind of adult show and tell!] ;)

And by ‘adult’ I mean, that I’m about 1 slice of bread away from squealing like a 6 year old.

Pumpkin Butter Swirl Butternut Pecan Bread

Pumpkin Butter was swirling through my dreams last night and I came up with this swirly and delicious bread. This is quite possibly the most moist, dense, and tempting bread I have ever made, but still packed with healthy ingredients of course. If you are not a fan of very moist breads this isn’t for you, but luckily I just love them. The bread is so moist you don’t need a lick of butter and will be coming back for more and more. Don’t worry if you don’t have any Butternut squash puree, you can easily sub in pumpkin in this recipe.

Ingredients:

Dry ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups spelt flour (or all-purpose, Kamut, white whole wheat)
  • 1/2 cup Sucanat or packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon ground cloves (optional)

 

Wet ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (honey might work)
  • 1 cup canned butternut squash or canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil (or canola oil)
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1 ground flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp warm water, mixed)

 

To stir in:

  • 3/4 cup Pumpkin Butter
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped and toasted if desired

 

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a loaf pan with parchment and then lightly grease with oil. In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Add wet to dry and stir well until fully incorporated. Be careful not to over mix. You want to stop stirring just when it comes together. Fold in the nuts.

Pour half the batter into the pan and spread out with a spatula. Take half of your pumpkin butter and scoop out onto the middle of the pan (see below). Now grab a spoon and swirl the pumpkin butter all around (see below). Now take the rest of the batter and pour over top. Spread around with spatula to smooth out. Now take the rest of your pumpkin butter and scoop onto top and swirl throughout the batter.

Place the pan into the oven preheated to 350F. Bake for approx. 50-55 minutes. The bread will very slowly bounce back when pressed with your finger. Allow to cool before removing from pan for about 30 mins. Makes enough for 8-10 slices.

Note: This bread is very heavy + dense and as a result did not rise that much. This might be partly due to using whole grain spelt flour, and also, due to the layers of pumpkin butter. If you want a less moist bread you can sub the maple syrup for more sugar as a start. I would also guess that it would rise higher if you don’t use whole grain spelt as it is a heavy flour.

Assemble the dry ingredients…

I fell in love with the whisk pictures and they sorta stole my heart. I get a bit distracted at times. ;)

20101109-IMG_0070

Whisk!

20101109-IMG_0087

Assemble the wet ingredients:

 20101109-IMG_0091

Mix.

Add wet to dry…

20101109-IMG_0101

Stir until just incorporated.

20101109-IMG_0105

Now we layer.

20101109-IMG_0108

Add half the batter into the loaf pan and spread out with spatula.

20101109-IMG_0112

Add half the pumpkin butter down the middle…

20101109-IMG_0115

Get your swirl on with a spoon.

20101109-IMG_0118

Now add the rest of the batter and smooth out.

20101109-IMG_0125

Add the rest of the pumpkin butter and get your swirl on once more!

20101109-IMG_0129

20101109-IMG_0130

Now bake for about 50-55 minutes at 350F. Cool for at least 30 minutes before removing and slicing.

It will be very hard to wait. You might have to leave the house.

Slice.

I LOVE this bread. I am a huge fan of super moist and dough-like interiors and this bread fits the bill. The pumpkin butter does a beautiful job in making this bread gooey and soft.

 20101109-IMG_0154

Gooey goodness.

20101109-IMG_0161 

The pecans also added a lovely texture. Next time I might even add more.

How do you like your sweet breads? Are you a fan of moist and gooey interiors or do you prefer a drier texture and more fluff?

I enjoy both moist + doughy breads and also fluffier and drier breads. I am an all-inclusive and non-discriminatory bread lover. ;) Eric on the other hand, love dry breads and cookies- the drier the better, he says. You know what they say…opposites attract…

Yumm! This looks great! Question – where have you been able to find canned pureed butternut squash? I had a look next to the other canned veggies and pumpkin but couldn’t find it. As far as quick breads go, I’m more of a dry and fluffy texture kind of girl, but I’m really not picky. Can’t wait to try the new Glo Bar!!

Moist and gooey all the way…I hate dry anything. Dry skin, dry food, but dry baked goods are…the worst to me. Your bread looks PERFECT! I would gobble it all up!

I used to pick the part of my grandma’s banana bread apart that was the moist-est and leave the drier parts behind…I wouldn’t have to do that with your bread. LOL

Go out and enjoy the weather…and don’t blog anymore today! You deserve it!!!!!! I remember growing up in a northern climate that random warm days were to be cherished!!!!!! :)

oh, decisions decisions…first, i love quickbreads – prefer them over yeast/regular breads. then, i’d have to go with moist breads. i like recipes that make a crispy exterior then are soft and dense inside. i do like a drier texture for scones, though.
i agree – this weather is DIVINE! (i’m in waterloo!) let’s enjoy this week – it’s so atypical for november!

Angela,

I’m a long time reader and first time commenter. I love your recipes, but this is the first one I’ve actually tried myself! I used whole wheat flour and the bread rose considerably upon baking. I used two eggs and honey, I was out of applesauce and maple syrup. Also I added some chocolate chips in the middle and on top.

The bread turned out really well and quite sweet– it definitely didn’t need the extra sprinkling of chocolate chips!!

thanks for your wonderful recipes and blogging. you are truly an inspiration!

At this time of year the markets are overflowing with pumpkins and winter squash! I processed all of my jack-o-lanterns – roasted and then pureed and froze in 1 cup portions, so I’ve got a ton of frozen pumpkin puree and I’m going to do a few big butternut squash as well so I’ve got some on hand for the winter. So much tastier than the canned stuff, and easy! Your pumpkin butter looks amazing, I’m definitely going to make some with some of my pumpkin puree, and this loaf looks great too! Thanks for all of the amazing recipes!

I made this as soon as I saw you post it! LOL. I used pumpkin instead of butternut squash because I already had fresh pumpkin. And I did use honey instead of maple syrup. I actually use honey instead of syrup in all your recipes, manily because I don’t keep syrup on hand but have a huge jar of local honey. Mine actually rose more than I had expected. Tasted delicious!!! I had to finally hide it so my husband wouldn’t eat it all in one night!

Before I comment on this amazing bread I have to ask, did you send your rain, doom and gloom to us in MA? Because if you did, I may have to just re-gift it. ;)

Looks like I am going to baking some bread this weekend! I prefer the moist sweets and gooey just makes my heart go a flutter.

I have to ask, where do you get your pumpkin from? Do you make your own puree? Or do you know of a good canned organic pumpkin?!

I use Farmer’s Market Organic pumpkin. I only buy it organic because I get a deal with my wholesaler though. I dont think pumpkin is in the dirty dozen…

Angela,

I was wondering if you have any suggestions on how to maybe make this a gluten-free recipe? I think my MIL would LOVE this… but.. alas, anywhere even CLOSE to gluten and she is in the hospital.

As for me, personally? I am dying to try it… I can’t believe how yummilicious this looks!!
Thanks!

This bread is incredible. My husband ate 90% of the first loaf I made, and it’s going to make an appearance at Thanksgiving this year. It’s dreamy, thank you.

I made this for the second time last night and it is soo good! I love this recipe! And both times it has rose well for me. The first time I made it I used butternut squash puree, and this time I used pumpkin puree. Both are equally delicious :) Thanks for this recipe, Angela!

Would buckwheat flour work here? Definitely love moist and gooey more!

Who would have thought that a whole grain, vegan bread could be so moist and delicious! This is my go-to pumpkin bread recipe.

This is one of the first recipes I’ve made from your website and I keep coming back and making it again! I’ve never have pumpkin butter on hand but it turns out just fine without it. Once I made a version with a blend of barley flour and spelt flour and it was fantastic. It’s a great autumn recipe for pumpkin-lovers like me! :)
