Savory Sweet Breads

While all of the many decorative pumpkins that once graced just about every garden nursery as well as grocery store in the Autumn season of the year are long gone, one need not forget the pumpkin and what can be done with this ingredient until next year.

Who can forget those annual pumpkin patches in church lots where families traditionally take their small children for photo opportunities before taking home a chosen pumpkin to draw upon or carve for Halloween festivities?

Just like the sweet photos that can be enjoyed long after the day of photography has passed, fortunately for us seasonal fresh pumpkins are also typically preserved by canning and are available to us year round.

I was going through my mother's recipe files yesterday and came upon a pumpkin bread recipe given to her by one of her good friends who used to live in San Antonio, Texas and whom I had met. I decided to try it and it turned out to be a delicious "keeper" recipe. I know that I will be making it again and thought that I would share it with you.

Health Benefits of Consuming Pumpkin

It is easy to find many well written excellent articles pertaining to the health benefits of both the pumpkin and also its seeds, so instead of recanting those statistics, suffice it to say in brief that pumpkin...like it says right on the Libby can...is an "Excellent Source of Vitamin A & Fiber" and is also "Low in Calories & Fat."

Some of the ingredients for making pumpkin bread.

Pumpkin Bread Recipe Ingredients

1 can (15 oz or 425 g) of pumpkin

4 eggs

3 cups sugar

1 cup salad oil ( I used light olive oil )

2/3 cup water

3 1/3 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon cloves

Nuts if desired. ( I used 2/3 cup ground walnuts )

Easy Directions for Making the Pumpkin Bread

In a large bowl, mix the sugar, salad oil, eggs, pumpkin and water together and blend well.

Note: Although the recipe did not call for it, I sifted the flour and spices together.

Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture saving a bit of the flour mixture to mix with the nuts.

Add the nuts mixed with the remaining flour at the end and pour into greased bread pans to bake. I spray my bread pans with Pam.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out dry.

Makes 2 large loaves, 4 medium loaves or 6 small loaves of pumpkin bread.

Enjoy the pumpkin bread warm out of the oven or cooled. It is delicious either way!

      Pumpkin walnut bread is one of the few things I attempt to bake. The other is banana walnut bread. I just read Rajan's hub about the many health benefits of pumpkin and pumpkin seeds, so I'll probably make more of the pumpkin bread than the banana in future. The spices make it SO good!

      I never thought about baking pumpkin bread, my usually usage of pumpkin is in curries, thank you for this idea i'd have to try it. Hopefully it will taste good. I've tried walnut bead before which goes down a treat. Pumpkin bread now that'd be something to share with the neighbours.

      Believe it or not, I have a single pumpkin ready to harvest right now, so I will make use of this recipe very shortly! To answer your question, no Ray does not eat pumpkins! I thought he would, but he is not interested in pumpkins or any other squash. We will be getting some goats to keep him company within the next week or so. I know they will eat pumpkins! :D

      Hi Tony,

      So glad that you liked the sound of this pumpkin bread recipe. You say that pumpkin is not that popular except for carving in your part of the world. Interesting. Over here it is associated with pumpkin pies at Thanksgiving but is sold year round in canned form. I have used it in soups successfully. Thanks for your comment, up vote and the 5 star rating.

      Hi Suzanne,

      From the sound of it, you will be able to provide the Methodist church all the pumpkins they need this coming Fall season for their annual fundraiser. :)) Does your donkey eat any pumpkin? I believe they would eat carrots, so just wondering if you have tried feeding it any raw pumpkin?

      You should take some pictures of your pumpkin patch this Fall and write a hub about it. Glad that you liked this pumpkin bread recipe. You will surely have an abundance of one of the main ingredients when they all mature. Appreciate your comment and votes.

      this recipe sounds delicious, I've not used pumpkin much it has only just started being popular over here, and then only for carving.

      I will clip this and store it away! My back yard is going to look like your pumpkin patch photo come fall! Last year the Methodist church gave me and my donkey a dozen bales of straw, a round bale of hay and 25 organic pumpkins all left over from their pumpkin patch event! I just tucked the pumpkins all around the yard and covered them with compost. Now I have pumpkin plants sprouting everywhere! LOL! :D Voted up and useful!

      Hi MJennifer,

      So very happy to hear that you are enjoying this pumpkin bread recipe. Thanks for the note about the water. I added that to the wet ingredients and made a note of it in the instructions. It was an oversight. Thanks for catching it! Whole wheat flour would make it even healthier to eat and your extra spices even more yummy I am sure. Will do that the next time I bake this sweet bread. Really appreciate your return comment. :))

      Just wanted to check back in to tell you that as I type this, I am eating a warm, butter-slathered slice of your pumpkin walnut bread. I subbed whole wheat flour and added cardamom and allspice, and it is absolutely divine. Even my picky-eater husband has already announced he will have it for breakfast. I'm going to wear this recipe out!

      I did notice 2/3 cup of water in your ingredient list but didn't see it in the directions (maybe I missed it?) so I added it to the egg/pumpkin mix prior to adding the dry ingredients. I only point it out in case you want to clarify it so no one forgets to add the water at some point -- after all, with such a great recipe it'd be a darned shame if someone didn't have it turn out just as it should!

Your adding cardamom and nutmeg to this bread recipe would be delicious. Think that I'll add those ingredients the next time I make more pumpkin walnut bread.

      Hi Alastar,

      I agree with you in that most often I also like fresh ingredients as opposed to canned. Pumpkin is one exception to the rule. Thanks for your comment and hope that "your cook" likes this recipe. :))

      Hello JRGray,

      No reason to only think of enjoying pumpkin bread just during the holidays. It is a year round treat and easy enough to make. I have never eaten the Starbucks version but am sure it is probably very good since from what you say you are now missing it. Thanks for your comment.

      Pumpkin and Walnuts are the ticket here, although not crazy about canned food will make an exception with this recipe. I'll be honest about it and say i don't always follow through with all the great recipes read on HP, but this one definitely; I'll at least tell the cook about it and go from there. Appreciate this delight from your mother's recipe book, Peggy!

      Nothing worse than when starbucks' pumpkin bread goes away for the season. This looks like a great way to get my off-season fix. Thanks!

      Hi agusfanani,

      I agree that pumpkins grouped together in a field make for a lovely view. Just made some pumpkin soup for lunch today and it turned out great. It is a healthy food source. Thanks for your comment.

      Hi donnah75,

      A nice home baked pumpkin walnut bread would not only warm up the kitchen but add lovely scents to your home. I know that it is still chilly in New York. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for your comment.

      Hello neelu sinha,

      For people who may not like the taste of pumpkin, all of the spices added to this pumpkin walnut bread recipe may just change their mind as you said. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Thanks for your comment.

      I was thinking of making a quick bread today, as it is chilly and baking to warm the house up sounds like a plan. I am going to try this if I can muster the motivation to pop down to the store for a can of pumpkin :) Thanks!

      Hi Kathryn,

      Thanks for adding a link from this hub to your pumpkin pancake one. We enjoyed eating them this weekend and have many left to microwave or warm up in the toaster oven for future breakfasts.

      It seems really tasty as pumpkin is not loved by every one, may be this recipe can change the taste.
