The grainy texture of polenta and the marriage of flavours of pumpkin and sweet spices create a unique versatile loaf. Can also be made with cooked sweet potato or butternut squash instead of pumpkin. Serve warm or cold with savoury or sweet dishes.

Used mashed fresh sweet potatoes instead of pumpkin and cut cloves back to 1/2 tsp. Absolutely loved this!

This recipe is actually a good jumping-off point. I adjusted a few things... reduced the salt/baking soda by half, and added 1/2 c Splenda for some extra sweetness. I didnt have all the individual spices on hand, so I just used pumpkin pie spice (1 1/2 tsp). I didn't use store-bought polenta, but instead made my own homemade. And while I had to let it bake for longer than 45 mins (total time of 1 1/2 hours), it was a fantastic flavor and really great for my low-calorie/low-fat lifestyle. I can see a lot of things to do with this recipe, but it is a great start. Thanks for sharing your idea! Jules

The problem with this recipe isn't the baking soda or salt it's the cloves. Decrease the cloves or change it to pumpkin pie spice (2 t) instead of the other spices, and it's GREAT!!!! You can change the sugar to Splenda or fructose, change the yogurt to fat free yogurt or sour cream, and this recipe fits the weight watchers core plan! Very good, moist pumpkin corn bread!
