Pumpkin Beer BreadSubmitted by: 1TRULYBLESSED
IntroductionMy husband found this recipe and asked me to make it. It's a very moist, flavorful bread that tastes great on a chilly fall day. I plan to play with it a bit to increase the nutrition while reducing the calories. My husband found this recipe and asked me to make it.

1¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch ground nutmeg
Pinch ground allspice
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup pumpkin purée
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup pumpkin ale
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts
Use the leftover pumpkin in a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie (http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=1845331) or Pumpkin Steel-Cut Oats (http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=1780723)
2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat (or in a medium bowl in the microwave). Remove from the heat. Stir in the pumpkin and brown sugar, then stir in the eggs. Finally, stir in the pumpkin ale. Add the pumpkin mixture and nuts to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined, then transfer the batter to the greased pan.
3. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour.
