Pumpkin Bread Recipe, or others

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a pumpkin bread, zuchinni or banana bread recipe made with Splenda? I have some things to use up here at home and would LOVE to make especially the Pumpkin bread.

I tried doing the pumpkin w/spenda...it just did not come out well at all. The bread just does not rise correctly with it. I do though have a zuchhini bread one...I will look for it. I did get that one from a splenda book and it isn't bad at all:)

My niece made a wonderful banana bread with Splenda. I couldn't tell there was Splenda in it (I hate Splenda -- icky aftertaste), that's how good it is.

This site has a recipe: Banana Bread recipe – why you wish you were at my house this morning Gone to the Dogs

This is the recipe I use fir 2 loaves - either for zucchini or apple. Freezes well:

3/4 cups egg beaters (or 3 eggs)

1 cup applesauce

2 cups Splenda or 1 cup (packed) Splenda Brown

2 cups grated zucchini (or grated apple)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped walnuts - optional

1 cup raisins (optional but I find they keep the bread very moist and they help with the old bowels!).

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8x4 inch loaf pans.

In a large bowl, mix egg beaters apple sauce and sugar substitute.

Stir in zucchini and vanilla

Combine flour, cinnamon, soda, baking powder, salt and nuts; stir into the egg mixture.

Divide batter into prepared pans.

Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, or until knife comes out clean.

Corrine: do I match the sugar for splenda exact? It calls for 2 cups of sugar. Is that 2 cups of Splenda?

Ordinary Splenda (white stuff) is used exactly like sugar 1:1. The Splenda Brown uses half as much but pack it in.

I like using the brown occasionally - gives it a different flavour. And I've even used 1 cup white Splenda, 1/2 cup packed brown Splenda - especially with grated apples.
