Updated on March 8, 2014
5 stars from 22 ratings of Pumpkin Bread

Kitchenware Required

  • a 9"x5"x3" loaf pan
  • a medium mixing bowl
  • a large mixing bowl
  • a wire bakers rack
  • a handheld electric mixer

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour 15 min
Yields: 16 slices (1 loaf)


  • 1 can pumpkin, (15 oz.)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F., and grease the inside of your loaf pan. Set the greased pan aside.
  2. Add the sugar and oil to your large mixing bowl, and use a hand-held electric mixer set to medium speed to combine.
  3. Add the all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, ground nutmeg, and ground cinnamon to your medium size mixing bowl, and stir to combine.
  4. Add the flour mixture and water (alternately) a bit at a time while beating with your electric mixer set to low speed just until combined.
  5. Beat your pumpkin into the mixture.
  6. Scoop the batter into your greased loaf pan (filling it no more than 2/3 full).
  7. Bake your pumpkin loaf until a toothpick inserted into the center of it comes out clean when removed, and the loaf is golden in color (approximately 1 hour).
  8. Remove the loaf pan from the oven, and set it on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes. Take the loaf out of the pan, and place it on the wire rack until it has completely cooled.
  9. Wrap the loaf, and store it overnight before slicing it.

      This is the most moist and delicious pumpkin bread I've ever tasted! I love the fact that your recipe uses canned pumpkin, because I don't have to wait till fall to enjoy a slice with a cup of hot coffee. 5 stars for sure!
