"That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong"

Tummy Friendly Bread

Here is a delicious bread recipe that is more of a cake.  It is easy on the tummy and smells great cooking!!

Pumpkin Apple Spice Bread
Makes two 9X5 loves
Preheat oven to 350

1 tbs all-purpose unbleached white flour
5 tbs brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs canola oil
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl & set aside

Sift into a large bowl:
3 cups all purpose unbleached white flour
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp ginger
Whisk dry ingredients with a wire whisk or fork until thoroughly blended.

In a large bowl beat well with an electric mixer:
16 oz. can pumpkin
3/4 cup canola oil
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
8 organic egg whites

Fold into wet ingredients:
2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled & chopped (about 2 cups)

With a wooden spoon, add the dry ingredients to the wet, stirring the batter by hand until well blended.  Pour batter into 2 non-stick loaf pans sprayed with cooking oil.  Sprinkle on topping.  Bake for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.  Cool on racks.

I got this out of a book written by Heather Van Vorous.  The book is called "Eating for IBS".  It has lots of yummy recipes and they don't hurt your tummy!!  Her website is www.helpforibs.com so check it out if you have tummy issues.
