Science Behind

Baking powder is a mixture of cream of tart and sodium bicarbonate. Which is normally used to replace yeast for baked items that you do not knead by hand. Baking powder is used to raise the volume of baked food items such as quick breads and cakes.

 

Method:

Start preheating the oven at 350°F or 180°C.

Lightly grease the sides and bottoms of an 8.5×4 inch loaf pan. Preheat the oven at 350°F or 180°C. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, butter, milk, pumpkin, and vanilla together.

Sieve, 3/4 cup flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and sift into the egg mixture, blend until combined. Divide the batter in half, one bowl with cocoa, and the other the remaining 1/4 flour.

Start scooping the two batters in the greased pan creating two rows of alternating scoops, after which you gently swirl together the two mixtures.

In the preheated oven, bake the batter for 50 minutes until the center is set. After which you can top with coarse sugar(optional).

Allow bread to cool before serving.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour(set aside 1/4 cup)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp coarse sugar(only for topping)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter(unsalted)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree (canned)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder(unsweetened)

Instructions

    Lightly grease the sides and bottoms of an 8.5x4 inch loaf pan and set aside.

    Start preheating the oven at 350°F or 190°C.

    In a medium mixing bowl or stand mixer(if you have one) whisk together the sugar, eggs, butter, milk, pumpkin, and vanilla together.

    Using a large mesh sieve, add 3/4 flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and sift into the egg mixture. Scrape the sides with a rubber spatula Then blend until combined.

    Divide the batter into half in a separate small bowl. To the small bowl add the cocoa powder and whisk together. You Can add the remaining 1/4 cup of flour to the other (non-chocolate) bowl and whisk.

    Scoop the two batters in the greased pan creating two rows of alternating scoops. What I did was to add the two batters in separate piping bags then alternate piping the mixtures in rows, going from pumpkin chocolate pumpkin in the first row to chocolate pumpkin chocolate in the next row.

    With a Knife off a long skewer makes gentle swirls in the figure 8 motion(it is not limited you can also be creative with your swirls). After which you can top with coarse sugar(optional).

    Bake for 50 to 55 minutes in the preheated oven until the center is set,  you can tell if the skewer comes out without wet batter if it is firm to the touch. Allow bread to cool before serving.
