Are you looking for a pumpkin bread recipe? We have a new pumpkin spice bread recipe to share with you. It’s a baking recipe we adapted. We think it’s the perfect fall snack, treat or dessert recipe. You will love baking this recipe anytime your ready to heat up your oven and enjoy a good slice of pumpkin bread.
Add this pumpkin bread to your fall baking list because nothing says fall like pumpkins, pumpkin spice breads and sweaters.
One of my favorite things to do in the fall is bake. It’s something I started doing with my grandma as a child. There is something heartwarming about heating up the oven on a cold day, which warms up the house. Creating a wonderful smelling home while something good baking in the oven that you can pull out and enjoy.
You can easily freeze this bread for the holidays, or freeze half a loaf for later. I often pre slice the pumpkin bread and add it separated with parchment or wax paper to freezer bags to pull out later for breakfasts. Or unexpected guests.

This pumpkin bread recipe still has all the flavors of fall but, isn’t overly spiced with nutmeg and cloves. I have to be honest. I don’t like my pumpkin breads heavily spiced with nutmeg and cloves. We did use pumpkin spice mix and cinnamon, making this nice blend of fall flavors that are sure to please anyone.
If you don’t like pumpkin bread try any of these sweet breads, and no yeast breads:

- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin puree
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. pumpkin spice
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1-1/2 cups white flour
- non stick spray for preparing pan
- 2 tbsp. flour for preparing pan
Mix softened butter, 2 eggs, pumpkin puree and light brown sugar in your mixing bowl or mixer.
In a separate bowl - add all your dry ingredients together and gently mix all ingredients by hand to distribute dry ingredients.
Slowly add mixed dry ingredients to your mixer or bowl with already creamed wet ingredients. DO NOT OVER MIX!
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare your baking pan by spraying with a non stick spray. Add a little flour and move around your baking pan to cover sides. Shake out excess flour.
Add your mixed batter to your baking loaf pan.
Set your pan in the oven to bake it. It will take 45-60 minutes. Use a knife or tooth pick to see when it comes out clean. But, don't over bake. You will have to keep checking during the last 20 minutes.
Let cool slightly before removing from pan. You can use a knife along the sides if needed to loosen edges of baked pumpkin bread then... (be careful if you use a non stick pan this could scratch the sides. Try to remove bread from pan it first before doing this.)
Take a plate and place it over your baking dish and flip it over.
Serve with coffee and add butter to the top if desired.
IMPORTANT: Set your pan in the oven to bake it. It will take 45-60 minutes. Use a knife or tooth pick to see when it comes out clean. But, don't over bake. You will have to keep checking during the last 20 minutes.
