BOO-zy Pumpkin Bread
Sugar, spice and everything…SPOOKY. We bring you the best of all things Fall with this delightfully BOO-zy pumpkin bread recipe. Made with Hollow Jack’d and Pommeau, two of the best Fall beverages come together in our version of drunken pumpkin bread. So grab your BOO-ze and let’s get baking (don’t forget to leave some for the actual bread, you, yes you).
2 cups all-purpose flour (sub equal amounts Gluten Free AP)
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
¼ tablespoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup pumpkin (canned or fresh puree)
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 flax eggs (2 Tbsp flax meal w/ 6 Tbsp warm water)
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 – 3 Tbsp Pommeau according to taste
3 Tbsp Hollow Jack’d (+ 2 Tsp for top)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan.
Make your flax eggs. Add 2 Tbsp ground flax meal with 6 Tbsp warm water, mix well with a fork and set aside.
Whisk together the flour, coconut palm sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices.
Melt the coconut oil in the microwave (about 15 seconds)
Using a whisk or a standing mixer, combine the pumpkin, coconut oil, eggs, apple sauce, vanilla extract and Pommeau together until all of the ingredients are well mixed.
Add the dry ingredients by folding them in with a spatula until completely incorporated into the wet ingredients.
Pour into the greased loaf pan and sprinkle with granulated sugar of choice.
Bake on the center rack for one hour, or until a toothpick is inserted in the middle and comes out clean.
While still warm, pour 2 Tsp Hollow Jack’d over bread immediately after taking out of the oven
Allow to cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes before removing. This bread can be served in the pan, or removed for slicing.
If you refrigerate before cutting, you may need to warm it up before it will easily come out of the pan. To remove, insert a knife all around the edges and turn it upside down over your hand.
