Pumpkin Bread

I grew up eating pumpkin bread and I love it! I had left over pumpkin in my fridge this week, but didn’t have my mom’s pumpkin bread recipe, so I just googled a recipe and found this (the original recipe called for pumpkin seeds, but I left them out). I gave it a shot, hoping it would be good, and I was not disappointed!


2 cups flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups cooked pumpkin (canned or frozen)


Preheat oven to 325 F.

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Add wet ingredients and mix until there are no dry pockets. Pour mix into a greased or non-stick bunt pan (other baking pans can be used too).

Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

If you want to serve this bread as a dessert, try using Apple Cider Syrup as a glaze!
