Cantaloupe Bread

What you need: 

2 cups pureed can'taloupe
1 cup applesauce (chunky, unsweetened works well)
1/2 cup brown sugar
vegan substitute for two eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

What you do: 

In a large bowl, thoroughly mix can'taloupe, applesauce, vegan sugar, and egg substitute. In another bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Add this to the can'taloupe mixture and stir until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Pour batter into two lightly oiled bread pans and bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for roughly an hour, until a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean and the tops of the loaves are firm to the touch. Turn out of pans and cool on racks for another hour or so until the bread has set, then cut and enjoy!
This is a very flexible recipe: you can experiment with different flours, spices, and additions (I intend to try oat flour and various nuts, though dried fruits might make it too sweet). One eighth of a loaf is roughly 100 calories and almost totally fat free. Do not under bake this bread; it is very moist and might not set properly if not given adequate baking time.

Cantaloupe bread?!? Never heard of that.


I made this bread yesterday and was a little disappointed by how bland the flavor was.  With all the can'taloupe and applesauce I was expecting there to be more of a fruit taste.  All you can really taste is spice and even then not a lot of that.  I gave my twin a piece to sample as well to make sure it wasn't just a case of my taste buds being off but she agreed with me. :-\
