Cardamon-Glazed Pumpkin Loaf

This is a spin off from my pumpkin coffee cake, where the crumble is replaced with a simple, spiced glaze. This is a moist, beautiful loaf, perfect for gift-giving.

Grease three mini loaf pans, or one standard loaf pan and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix together the wet ingredients:
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup milk
1 beaten egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla

In another bowl mix together the dry ingredients:
2 cups flour
2/3 cups sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. allspice

Combine the wet and dry mixtures and stir just until evenly mixed. Pour into the greased loaf pan(s). Bake until cake springs back when touched and toothpick comes out clean.  If you are using the small pans, about 25-30 minutes.  For large pan, about 40-45 min.

Glaze:
1/3 cup icing sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cardamom
2 Tbsp. water

Mix sugar, spices and water together until smooth. Remove the cake from the oven and brush with the glaze when the loaves are still hot.
