Cooking Instructions

1

Heat oven to 350ºF. Butter a 9 1/4" x 5 1/4" x 3" loaf pan.


2

In skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter. Add the onion, curry powder, ground cumin, cayenne pepper and salt. Cook over medium low heat, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Let cool.


3

Sift the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and sugar into a bowl.


4

Melt remaining butter and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the pumpkin puree, chile, eggs, buttermilk, onion mixture and melted butter. Mix just until moistened. Add flour mixture and stir just until mixed. Fold in 1/2 cup shredded Colby. Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Bake 35 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining Colby over the bread top. Return to oven 5-7 minutes longer, until the cheese melts and the bread is baked through.


*To puree fresh pumpkin: peel the pumpkin and cut in 2-inch cubes. Boil in salted water until tender, 8-12 minutes. Drain. Puree pumpkin in food processor or blender.


**Cheddar can be substituted.
