Pumpkin Pie Chai Tea Bread

I named this bread pumpkin pie chai tea bread because it has a very moist, dense texture almost like pumpkin pie, with the spices of chai tea and a hint of orange. A cup of Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte would be just perfect with this tasty bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup 1% reduced fat milk
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
For the top:
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cinnamon roasted almonds
  • 1 tablespoon raw (turbinado) sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients (through allspice) in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk eggs, egg white, milk, juice, oil, and pumpkin in a medium bowl until thoroughly blended.
  4. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just blended. Spread batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle almonds and raw sugar on top.
  5. Bake the bread until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (60 to 65 minutes). Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before cutting, then take out of the pan and allow to cool further on a baking rack.
