I cannot remember all the variations of this recipe I have used over the years, but it is a lot. The wonderful thing about it is that you can have the ingredients for a tasty healthier sweet bread on hand with 'a bit of left over this and too many of that'. The leftover pumpkin from Halloween carving, an over abundance of zucchini from the garden, a basket of apples from a neighbor. Simply puree and freeze in 2 cup measurements in the freezer for bread whenever you feel like it. Just thaw in the fridge when you are ready to use them. Here are examples of some of the ingredients I have combined with this basic recipe:
Fruit or vegetable puree: zucchini, pumpkin, sweet potato, squash (summer and winter), apples, applesauce, pears
Whole fruits or nuts: pecans, walnuts, almonds, blueberries, cranberries
Spices: pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, orange zest, lemon zest
As an example, the bread I baked today was sweet potato and walnuts with pumpkin pie spice and a little extra cinnamon.
I am sure there are many more you could come up with. Apples and pears I sometimes chop fine and soften in a saucepan over med heat rather than puree before using or freezing, everything else goes into the food processor.
