This recipe is very similar to my regular beer bread, but with the added goodness of pumpkin. The big, orange gourd is a great, low calorie source of vitamin-A, calcium, copper, potassium and phosphorous.

Ingredients:

3 cups flour (I used all-purpose flour)
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons agave nectar or honey
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 – 12-ounce bottle of beer

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9×5-inch bread pan
  3. Stir flour, baking powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice, honey and pumpkin puree together in a large mixing bowl until combined.
  4. Stir in beer until smooth.
  5. Bake for 60 minutes
  6. Let bread rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.
