Pumpkin Bread

This Pumpkin Bread is super moist and full of pumpkin flavor, and couldn’t be easier to make, all you need It is one bowl. If you are wanting to fill your house with the smell of fall, make this bread!

I am an autumn junkie, anything fall is my favorite. I love flannels, apple picking, crunchy leaves, football, and lets not forget anything and everything pumpkin. There is something so comforting about colder weather, sweaters, and everything pumpkin spiced flavored. Including today’s recipe, which is basically fall wrapped up in carbs, Pumpkin Bread.

This pumpkin bread, is super moist and full of pumpkin flavor, and couldn’t be easier to make. It is a simple one bowl recipe. All of the wet ingredients are mixed together pumpkin puree, eggs, butter, vanilla, and brown sugar. And then the dry ingredients are added flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves, a voila your pumpkin bread is ready for the oven.

The bread bakes for 45 minutes, and fills your whole house with a delicious smell. After it is cooled you are then ready to dig in. I love to grab a mug full of chai tea, a piece of this Pumpkin Bread, and sneak away to where my son isn’t to have a minute in peace.

  • I line my bread pan with parchment paper so the bread can easily come in and out, I also lightly grease the parchment paper, If you don’t have parchment paper you could also use greased tin foil or just make sure your pan is really well greased.
  • This recipe only uses 1 cup of pumpkin puree, so if you are looking for more ways to use up a can of pumpkin try my Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte, Healthy Pumpkin Mug Muffin or my Pumpkin Bran Muffins
