This delicious Pumpkin Bread has been a family favorite for over two decades. Your family will love it as well.

One day a few years ago, I saw a “pumpkin everything is coming” meme on social media.

It inspired me and I promptly went into my kitchen and baked a batch of pumpkin bread. When my youngest asked me what I was making, my answer was greeted with a cheer of joy.

Yes. Yes, Jack, it is that good.

This recipe makes three loaves which is extremely handy. Nearly every time I make this recipe, an entire loaf will have vanished before they even cool from baking.

But, you could have one now, gift one to a friend, and freeze one for later!

Notes

I coat all of my baking dishes with a mixture that I make and keep in the pantry. Whether the recipe calls for the pan to be sprayed with cooking/baking spray or it calls for it to be greased and floured. Look for my "homemade baking spray replacement" here on the blog.

  1. YUM! i made your pumpkin bread this weekend and it was delish. i realized (too late) that i didn’t have allspice, so i just added more cinnamon, cloves & nutmeg (time to do a fall spice shopping list, i guess). this recipe was a perfect idea for the first chilly afternoon of football. we put cream cheese on a piece and brumble & brown on one! i think it will be really great warmed with a scoop of ice cream!

    i took a photo of the recipe so i didn’t have the website pics — “adding the dry ingredients” needs to be added in the recipe steps.

    this one’s a WINNER. keeping it handy for the season!!!
