sooo i had extra pumpkins leftover from halloween and decided to try the pumpkin bread recipe from Alicia's book. I followed the recipe, except I halved everything because the recipe makes 2 loafs, and i wanted one.
I don't know if it's something I did, or if it's the recipe, but there was way too much liquid and not enough flour. i ended up cooking it for almost 2 hours (the recipe says 45 min to an hour) and it was just a goopy mess. Finally I gave up and threw it out. Has anyone tried this recipe with success? I'm hesistant to try again.
hi, I made it yesterday except I only had one cup of maple sugar so I added a half cup of agave. It is VERY moist, but I love it that way! Sometimes recipes are funny about halfing and doubling. Maybe next time just add more flour.
It may have something to do with how you prepared the pumpkin. I know one year I tried making a pumpkin pie with pumpkins from scratch but I didn't drain them enough or something. It took HOURS to bake and never really quite set right. I tried a different method I found on the internet that had me really drain the puree and that works well. That's cool you used your own pumpkin - homemade pumpkin puree tastes soooo much better than canned :) -Jules
I made this as well. I followed the directions exactly and it came out goopy in the middle. I made it with pumpkin from scratch and I am sure it had to do with me not draining the pumpkin puree enough. The ends were delish though! haha
I realize now that that pumpkin was probably not drained properly. This was the first time I have used a fresh pumpkin, i didn't know it would hold so much water after cooking. Today I tried again, using a slightly different recipe from another vegan cookbook, but after cooking the pumpkin I drained it with a cheesecloth, and had much better results.
