Cantaloupe

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups pureed cantaloupe (about one 5-inch round melon)
  • 1½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • Glaze:
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup chopped pecans

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour two, 9 x 5-inch loaf pans. In a large mixing bowl beat together eggs, applesauce, sugar, vanilla and pureed cantaloupe. In a separate bowl, sift together flours, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger. Add flour mixture to cantaloupe mixture; mix just until combined, then pour batter into prepared pans. Bake in the center of a preheated oven for 60 to  70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean and top of loaf springs back when pressed. Let loaves cool in pans for 10 minutes, run a knife around edge then turn out of pans to a cooling rack.

For Glaze: Combine butter and brown sugar in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high 3 minutes, stirring well at 1 minute intervals, until smooth and sugar is melted; add pecans to the glaze. Pour glaze over warm loaves. Allow glazed loaves to cool one hour before serving.
