Pumpkin Cornbread

Nothing says fall like some homemade warm pumpkin cornbread! I made this last week and ate a huge piece every night as dessert!

Adapted from Cara's Cravings


• non-stick cooking spray
• 1 cup flour
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
• 1 cup cornmeal
• 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
• 1/2 unsweetened applesauce
• 1/2 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a 9x9 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

Pour evenly into baking pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until cooked throughout.
