Pumpkin Apple Bread

This recipe comes from Kristin, who made it from a Weight Watchers recipe. It sounds so great and yummy for a fall day!

What you need:
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup + 1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 large egg
1 cup low fat buttermilk
1 medium apple, peeled, cored and grated
1/2 cup cooked pureed pumpkin or canned pumpkin puree
1 tsp confectioners sugar

What you do:
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients.

In a small bowl, beat egg; add buttermilk, apple and pumpkin.

Add egg mixture to flour mixture and mix just until blended. Do not overblend.

Spoon into prepared pan and bake about 1 to 1 1/4 hours, or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool for ten minutes in pan; turn out onto a rack and cool thoroughly. Dust with confectioners sugar and serve.
