Cantaloupe Quick Bread Recipe

Cantaloupe Quick Bread Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/8 cup coconut or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2  cups cantaloupe – peeled, seeded and pureed
  • 3 cups flour  (I used white..but you could use 1/2 wheat..will make a denser texture)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 and lightly spray a 9×5 loaf pan or small baking dish…such as a 10×8 or a little larger.  In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla and cantaloupe.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger…I use a sifter…do you?

Then blend all together and pour into loaf pans or small baking dish

Cantaloupe batter (1)

Bake in oven for 1 hour for loaf pans OR 30 minutes for small baking dish until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

YUM!! This is delish and tastes a lot like Zucchini Bread BUT has a slight cantaloupe flavor.

Just a little tip…did you know that when you puree these kinds of fruits that you need very little oils to cook with?  As a matter of fact, oils can almost completely be eliminated by using pureed fruits such as applesauce, pureed pumpkin and the like.
