Pumpkin-Orange Spice Loaf

Yield 12 servings (serving size: 1 slice)
Pumpkin is rich in both beta carotene and vitamin C, while whole-wheat flour adds an extra dose of fiber. Wrap the loaf in plastic wrap, cinch the top with festive ribbon, and place decorative stickers around the top and sides. The bread can also be baked in miniature loaf pans for 45 minutes and wrapped as smaller individual gifts.

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
