I feel like this fall I have eaten my weight in pumpkin bread, which could have gotten pretty expensive if I was getting if from Starbucks, or at the grocery store. Luckily pumpkin bread is really easy, and cheap to make!
I love my pumpkin bread recipe because of all the different spices I use, and because of how moist it is. It’s one of the few breads I never get tired of making!
I am so excited to share this recipe with you all. For so long I’ve wanted to start sharing my recipes, so I’m glad I’m finally doing so, and I hope you all enjoy!
What you’ll need:
- 1/2 C. granulated sugar
- 1/2 C. brown sugar
- 1 C. all purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. pumpkin spice
- 1 tsp. cloves
- 1 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 large egg (or 2 small ones)
- 3/4 C. pumpkin puree
- 1/3 C. olive oil
- 1/3 C. water
* If your looking to “pump-up” your pumpkin bread try adding chocolate chips, or dried fruit- I like to add dry blueberries.
* I use all certified organic ingredients in my cooking and baking.
What you’ll do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
2. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices. Set aside.
3.In large sized bowl, combine egg, pumpkin puree, oil , and water.
4.Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. I added a quarter of the dry ingredients to the wet at a time. Fully combining them as I went.
5.Grease one 9X4 in. loaf pan & pour the batter evenly into it.
6.Bake at 350 degrees F (175 C) for 45-60 minutes, checking with a toothpick until it comes out clean.
7.Let the loaf cool for about 5 minutes, then place the loaf on a cooling rack to completely cool.
Enjoy! If you (somehow) have leftovers; store in plastic wrap, or air tight container.
