½ tsp. Nutmeg
½ tsp. Cinnamon
½ tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
In a mixing bowl combine:
¾ Cup Pumpkin (fresh or canned)
¼ Cup Samuel Adams Winter Lager (flat)
½ Cup Olive Oil
1 Package (about 2.5 oz.) organic vanilla or coconut pudding mix
½ C Shredded Coconut (sweetened or unsweetened - optional)
Pour into a greased loaf pan spread evenly. Bake in a pre-heated 350-degree oven for 50 minutes – use clean knife test. Cool before removing from pan. Refrigerate and served thinly sliced. This bread is best served cold as it brings out all the flavors.
You can also add a cup of your favorite nuts before baking and/or dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving.
