10-13 - Pumpkin Spice Bread

Tonight I made pumpkin bread! I've eaten this recipe before, but never baked it myself. It turned out well. I used this recipe from Hostess with the Mostess, but I'll paste it here in case that web page ever changes. Oh and I think mine came out a tiny bit denser than it's supposed to, but I may have needed to cook it for a couple more minutes. It's still delicious. I hope my coworkers like it!


2 cups canned pumpkin
3 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon ground cloves


Heat oven to 350. in a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, water, vegetable oil and eggs. Beat until well mixed. Measure the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, nutmeg and cloves into a separate bowl and stir until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, beating until smooth. Grease two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans and dust with flour. Evenly divide the batter between the two pans. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes, then remove from pans by inverting onto a rack and tapping the bottoms. Slice and serve plain, buttered, or with cream cheese.


  1. That's funny, I made pumpkin bread to take on our trip to Caspar. I used a recipe you posted in your blog. Maybe it is the same recipe. Mine was dense, too, but I like it that way, anyway. :)

  2. Looks and sounds really good! Mmm, cinnamon...

  3. Mom - I didn't think I posted a pumpkin bread recipe in my blog until now! Do you mean the one I gave you in email last year that you made for Mexico?

    Dan - I couldn't remember if you liked pumpkin! Guess so. :)
