Are you ready for the best Pumpkin Bread recipe?
I have been looking forward to Fall weather for many reasons, one of them being getting back to baking! I was wanting to make a new type of bread so I decided to try creating a Pumpkin Bread Recipe. I have made recipes with pumpkin, but surprisingly enough, never bread. I wanted a delicious pumpkin bread, without a lot of fuss. Something that was easy to make, but hard to stop eating.
I hope your family loves this Pumpkin Bread recipe as much as mine did. By the way, if you are thinking you don’t really like things with pumpkin in it, you really need to give this recipe a try. I promise it is not too pumpkin tasting at all (I have a dear friend who doesn’t care for pumpkin and she LOVED this bread – true story).
The ingredients for this delicious pumpkin bread are easy!
- baking soda
- teaspoon salt
- small package vanilla pudding mix (dry)
- pumpkin pie spice
- can pumpkin
You probably have most of these items in the pantry already!
Before you know it… your family will be fighting over the last slice. 😉 No seriously…. they will!
If you need a loaf pan, I highly recommend you purchase this one – I would purchase 2. I have 2, but sometimes I wish I had 4. 🙂 This is a regular sized pan which is what I used. However, you can turn this recipe and make them into smaller loaves which are super fun for gift ideas.
Wilton Recipe Right 4 Cavity Mini Loaf Pan is a great pan and you can use this entire recipe to fill up those 4 mini loaf pans.
The Baker’s Secret 8 Petite Loaf Pan is also fun for gift ideas. You can use this recipe to make these 8 petite pans as well
- 1½ cup flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 small package vanilla pudding mix (dry)
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice**
- ½ cup oil
- 2 eggs
- ½ can pumpkin (about 1 cup)
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Spray 9" x 5" loaf pan.
- Mix all dry ingredients. **If you do not have pumpkin pie spice, you can substitute ¼ teaspoon each of nutmeg, allspice, ground cloves and ginger.
- Slowly stir in wet ingredients. Stir until well combined.
- Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
- Bake at 350 F for 55 - 65 minutes, or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
It is that easy!
That is it! I wasn’t kidding when I said it was easy. The pudding really gives this Pumpkin Bread recipe some added moistness. Try this and let us know what your family thought.
You can easily double this recipe and freeze one.
This recipe doubles very easily which allows you to use a whole can of pumpkin. Make them both and then freeze one. That way when your family is begging for you to make another one you are already prepared.
