Raisin Walnut Pumpkin Bread 葡萄干核桃南瓜面包

不要被食谱里长长的材料吓到,其实这是个做法简单的quick bread。单单看材料的组合就是我喜欢的东西,难怪面包出炉后一个下午就被吃掉了一半,除了一片是D吃的,其他的都进了我的肚子。

面包还是热呼呼时我就迫不及待切片拍照了,热热的面包软软湿湿的,下次还是要等到冷却后才切片。这面包吃进口里是满满的南瓜和恰到好处的肉桂味,吃到葡萄干时带有点酸味,咬到核桃时口感又更添丰富。我觉得像这样的东西不是很能迎合大众的口味,但是这肯定是my cup of tea。配上一杯热茶就是绝佳的早餐或下午茶点心了。

90g butter
130g sugar
¼ tsp salt
2 eggs (grade A)
220g pumpkin flesh (steamed and smashed while it is hot)
1 tsp vanilla extract
(D) – mix well and sift
240g plain flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon powder
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
125ml plain yogurt
60g raisins (pre-soaked in water, drained and coated with some flour)
60g chopped walnut (pre-roasted)
80g pumpkin flesh (cut into small cubes) (optional)

1) Beat (A) till pale and creamy.
2) Add (B) one at a time, mix well before next addition.
3) Add (C), mix well.
4) Fold in 1/3 of (D) alternate with 1/2 of (E), repeat till all ingredients are finished, mix well before each addition.
5) Fold in (F) in a few times.
6) Pour the batter into a lined 9"x14" loaf pan, bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 45-50 mins or till a skewer inserted and comes out clean.

1) The loaf pan I used was black colour type, I reduced the oven temp to 165C after baking for about 20mins as I worried that the side would be over baked if I maintained at 180C. In total I baked for 45 mins.
2) I find that the bread is slightly dense and wet (moist). If you do not like this kind of texture, reduce the amount of pumpkin flesh and omit the pumpkin cubes in (F).
3) The cinnamon in this bread is quite mild, increase the amount if you prefer stronger cinnamon taste but to me it is just nice.
4) Variation - replace raisins with other dried fruits such as dried cranberry.

  13. Hi Nostalgia,

    Thanks for your lovely comment. :-)

  14. hi, love your bread recipe.

    i am looking for a bread machine and can you advise what fuction should i look for while searching for one?

    1. Hi Ah Pui,

      Basic Bread machine comes with standard functions, you may refer to my bread machine post below. These are very standard fuctions. Now some newer model comes with more functions (suc as different type bread) and some even comes with a separate compartment for yeast or yogurt making function. I think these standard functions is good enough for me. Other thing you may want to look into is the bread pan, mine is vertical and the bread actually look a bit weird, look for horizontal bread pan. I believe most of the models now come with horizontal bread pan. Another thing is make sure there is preset function, means you can add the ingredients first and set the operation time. With this function you can add the ingredients at night and have the bread baked and done when you wake up the next day moring.
