3 eggs
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups pureed cantaloupe (about one 5-inch round melon)
1½ cups whole wheat flour
1½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
½ cup chopped pecans

20 slices


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour two, 9 x 5-inch loaf pans. In a large mixing bowl beat together eggs, applesauce, sugar, vanilla and pureed cantaloupe. In a separate bowl, sift together flours, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger. Add flour mixture to cantaloupe mixture; mix just until combined, then pour batter into prepared pans. Bake in the center of a preheated oven for 60 to  70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean and top of loaf springs back when pressed. Let loaves cool in
pans for 10 minutes, run a knife around edge then turn out of pans to a cooling rack.

For Glaze: Combine butter and brown sugar in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high 3 minutes, stirring well at 1 minute intervals, until smooth and sugar is melted; add pecans to the glaze. Pour glaze over warm loaves. Allow glazed loaves to cool one hour before serving.
