Warm Pumpkin-Blueberry Bread

Ingredients
 
Nonstick cooking spray
3/4
cup canned pumpkin
1/2
cup half-and-half
2
tablespoons packed brown sugar
2
teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2
teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
cup cold butter, cubed
3/4
cup fresh blueberries
1
1/2
cup maple syrup
2
tablespoons melted butter
1/2
cup chopped pecans, toasted*

Directions

  1. Coat a 4-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray. In a medium bowl stir together pumpkin, half-and-half, and brown sugar; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl stir together the 2 cups flour, the baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the 1/4 cup cold butter until pieces are pea-size. Add pumpkin mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until combined. In a small bowl combine blueberries and the 1 tablespoon flour; toss until berries are coated. Fold berries into flour mixture.
  3. Spoon mixture into prepared slow cooker. Pour maple syrup and the 2 tablespoons melted butter over mixture in slow cooker; sprinkle with pecans.
  4. Cover and cook on high-heat setting for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Turn off slow cooker. Carefully remove lid so condensation from lid does not drip onto bread. Cover opening of slow cooker completely with paper towels; place lid on top. Cool for 30 to 45 minutes. Serve bread warm from slow cooker.
