Classic Pumpkin Bread

One of my dear friends sent me a text the other day asking if I had a good pumpkin bread recipe.  I had to admit that I didn’t.  For years, I’ve been buying Trader Joe’s pumpkin bread mix.  It’s the only mix I’ll buy.  She also uses it but wanted to make something from scratch.  Of course, I had to start looking for a recipe.  I sent her the recipe I found and told her that I would make a classic pumpkin bread as well.

The loaf doesn’t bake up very high, but it’s a lovely moist flavorful bread.  Yes, I’m going to compare it to Trader Joe’s and I can say it was just as good!  My proof was when Miles tried to eat half of the loaf for breakfast.

Classic Pumpkin Bread

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly spray a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray. In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add the sugar and mix well. In a medium bowl combine the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and spices. Add to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined.
  2. Pour into the loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before removing from pan.

  1. So glad you like it 🙂

  2. They were delicious. I added chopped pecans and made 12 muffins. Will definitely make again.
    Also I used almost a whole can of pumpkin instead of 1 cup.
