PUMPKIN BREAD

Pumpkin Bread is a family favorite. It is absolutely delicious and we never have any left. I like to serve it with coffee in the morning.
Pumpkin Bread
This bread is so good anytime of the year.  It also makes a great gift for friends and family.  This bread keeps well for several days and is great warmed over in the microwave or oven and slathered with butter and honey.

Pumpkin bread is easy and delicious.

6 eggs
3 cups pumpkin (I use a 28 oz. can) or fresh pumpkin
1 1/2 cups cooking oil (I use Canola)
4 cups white sugar
4 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
 
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 3 loaf pans with cooking spray. Mix pumpkin, oil, sugar and eggs. Combine rest of ingredients and stir into pumpkin mixture until well blended. Divide
batter evenly between the 3 pans. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour. Top of loaf should spring back when pressed. Can add nuts, raisins or mini chocolate chips.
This is the best pumpkin bread you will ever make. It is very moist. You can add nuts, raisins or craisins to this bread if you like but we like it better just plain.
Sometimes, I make several different sizes of loaves to give away.   Enjoy!

  1. In case I use fresh pumpkin, do I put it in raw? In dices or grated? Thank you.
    Anna from Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

      1. You are welcome Anna. I do my best work in the middle of the night. lol. No distractions!

    1. I think it would be fine to make muffins but here is a recipe for pumpkin muffins on the site if you look on the right hand side of any page and click on breads there are lots of muffin recipes posted there.

  2. I make up 6-19 loaves at a time and wrap well to go in the freezer. How nice to have pumpkin bread ready to eat when U get the urge or company

  3. I’m thinking about making them into muffins and putting them in Christmas cupcake papers then frosting them with cream cheese frosting with chopped walnuts.

    1. I just stick a toothpick into them to make sure they are done but they have to cook almost as long as the larger ones. You can tell when they rise up and spring back when you press on the top.

      1. So its ok to put all 3 pans in at once? They will all bake the same without rotating the pans or anything?

    1. Yes, applesauce works fine but you should make some first before you intend to give it out as gifts. I added the same amount of applesauce for the oil, as the recipe originally spoke about.

  4. Just tried this recipe today (sooo much left over pumpkin from the holidays).. Turned out great!! My 18 month old son usually doesn’t eat pumpkin bread, but he is eating this like crazy.. lol. Thanks for sharing.

  5. On a pumpkin “bender” myself right now and do love a great pumpkin bread recipe. I think my mom made the best but I don’t have her recipe so I will plan on trying this one out very soon.

  6. I have a very similar recipe, Judy, and it is indeed wonderful. I add pecans to mine and, like you, enjoy giving the loaves as gifts.

  7. Thanks for sharing your recipe! My favorite Pumpkin Bread add-in’s are Craisins or finely chopped cranberries. Pumpkin Bread is the best!
