Makes 1 Loaf
½ cup (1 stick or ¼ pound) butter, softened
½ cup maple syrup
1½ cup pumpkin puree
½ cup coconut milk
1½ cup buckwheat flour (or use ½ cup coconut flour and ¾ cup buckwheat flour for a lighter bread)
1½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup walnuts, chopped and toasted
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Cream together butter and syrup. Add eggs. Beat until light and fluffy. Mix in pumpkin, coconut milk and spices. Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Add gradually until thoroughly combined. Stir in walnuts.
3. Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan and bake for 50 – 55 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean when finished. Cool in the pan for 5 – 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Cool completely before slicing.
