4ouncesunrefined coconut oilor butter [1/2 cup melted]
3/4cuppacked brown sugar
Preheat oven to 325° F. Spray loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, powdered milk, baking soda, baking powder, ground spices, and salt. Set aside.
In a small, microwave-safe bowl, heat coconut oil in microwave for 30 seconds to melt. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until the are lemon colored. Add pumpkin, brown sugar, molasses, warm water and vanilla. Mix on low to combine. Add coconut oil and mix thoroughly.
Stir in dry ingredients until well combine. (You can also mix this by hand.)
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Tap pan on counter a few times to get out the air bubbles, and then bake in preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Loaf is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow loaf to cool in the pan on a wire rack until he pan is cool enough to touch; at least 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Dust loaf with powdered sugar if desired.
Hint: Spray your measuring cup with non-stick cooking spray before you measure the molasses and it will slide right out. Or you can do what I do and just use the same measuring cup that you used for the melted coconut oil and eyeball the molasses.
