Pumpkin Harvest Loaf

What to do with those pumpkins...  This is one of my all time favorite recipes.  I have been tinkering with it for years and it's now quite intense.  :P

Pumpkin Harvest Loaf

2 cups cooked pumpkin or other winter squash
3 eggs or 6 egg whites
¼ cup lemon/lime juice
1 tablespoon lemon/lime zest
1 cup sugar
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
½ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Blend wet ingredients and sugar in large bowl and blend dry ingredients in small bowl.  Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients and pour into a greased 9 x 5 loaf pan and cook for 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. 

Lemon Glaze

¼ cup lemon/lime juice
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon/lime zest

Dissolve sugar into juice and add zest.  While the cake is still warm and in its pan, poke holes in the top and spoon glaze all over top.  Wait 5 minutes then remove from pan to cool.
Early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese!
