  • Loaf Pan
  • Saucepan
  • Mixing Bowl


  • 1 cup Apple Cider
  • 1 cup Canned Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • ¼ cup Vegetable Oil
  • ¾ cup firmly packed Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoon freshly grated Orange Zest
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Mace
  • ¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • teaspoon Ground Cloves


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously grease an 8 ½-by 4 ½-inch loaf pan with butter.
  • In a saucepan boil the cider until it is reduced to about ¼ cup and let it cool. In a bowl whisk together well the pumpkin purée, the eggs, the oil, the brown sugar, the zest, and the reduced cider. Into the bowl sift together the flour, the baking powder, the salt, the baking soda, the mace, the cinnamon, and the cloves, and stir the batter until it is just combined. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. (Note: Check the bread at about 35 minutes and cover with foil for the remainder of baking time if the surface has begun to brown.) Let the bread cool in the pan before serving.
