Recipe Ingredients for Pumpkin Quick Bread

1 1/2 cups walnut pieces
1/2 cup sunflower oil
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 organic eggs
1/3 cup reduced fat milk
9 ounces Pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup unbleached bread flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Pumpkin Quick Bread

  1. To make the pumpkin quick bread, preheat the oven to 350F (176C).

  2. Toast the walnuts in the oven on a rimmed baking sheet until fragrant and very lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool. Chop and set aside.

  3. Meanwhile, measure out the oil, dip a basting brush or your fingertips into the measuring cup, and oil a standard size loaf pan (8 1/2 by 4 1/2 by 2 3/4).

  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the brown sugar and oil on low speed. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and then add the buttermilk, pumpkin, and extract, if using. Continue to mix on low speed while you sift together the remaining dry ingredients in a large bowl. Slowly and carefully add the dry ingredients to the bowl and continue to mix, still on low speed, scraping down the sides just once. Mix just until combined.

  5. Stop the mixer and gently fold in the chopped walnuts. Scrape the batter into the oiled pan and bake until you can resist the aroma no longer and a tester inserted in the center of the quick bread comes out clean, 65 to 70 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn the quick bread onto a wire rack and cool for another 20 minutes before serving.
