Pumpkin Bread

This is the best pumpkin bread!

Here is the recipe for one loaf:


  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1-1/3 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups and 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
***Notes- I substitute about 1 - 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. I have also used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose. I have also added chopped pecans.***


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin, oil, sugar, and eggs. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves; stir into the pumpkin mixture until well blended. Pour into the pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. The top of the loaf should spring back when lightly pressed.
