Pumpkin Bread

November/December 1991

Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (159 votes)

Canned pumpkin puree and whole-wheat flour come together in this healthy homemade pumpkin bread. The canned pumpkin helps keep the bread moist and tender. If you like the flavor of pumpkin pie spice, feel free to add a pinch or two to season the bread.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This recipe is missing liquid. I had to add 2 cups of milk to get it looking anything like a quick bread batter. Also, it needs spices! I added 1T pumpkin pie spice "

I have not made this recipe, but have used another pumpkin bread recipe and substituted equal amounts of applesauce for the oil.

Bland loaf with great texture

I love pumpkin bread. I don't care for super sweet things. However, this tasted like pumpkin flavored flour. I had to cover the loaves about 35 minutes in to prevent burning, but I baked them for 55 minutes. I threw these away because I didn't want my dogs to eat that many carbs :} I would attempt this recipe again with either a couple tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice or subbing pumpkin pie filling. But, I'll probably just go to a more conventional recipe and cut the sugar. Good luck!

Nice crumb, good dense texture, easy

Good with some tweaking!

Overall, I'm glad I made this recipe. I'll enjoy the bread with my coffee this week. Even though I'm an amateur baker, I was surprised that there were no spices. So I added cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves and also a teaspoon of vanilla. The loaf turned out pretty good, although I had to bake it for about 10 to 20 minutes less than the recipe said.

Easy, few ingredients

Best pumpkin bread ever!

When this was first published it was touted as an easy but flavourful recipe gained by using the ww flour and brown sugar, extra spices not needed. It is so true. It is so versatile, dates and nuts are nice addition but you can throw in anything you have around (cranberries, apricot, etc). I have been making this for years as a family favorite.

Dense, moist, rich in flavour, few ingredients, easy to make, versa tile,can use favorite add-ins
