Are you ready for the Best Pumpkin Bread recipe?
I have been looking forward to Fall weather for many reasons, one of them being getting back to baking! I was wanting to make a new type of bread so I decided to try creating a Pumpkin Bread Recipe.
I have made recipes with pumpkin, but surprisingly enough, never bread. I wanted a delicious pumpkin bread, without a lot of fuss.
We love all things pumpkin and at the first hint of Fall, it is time to start baking.
Bring on ALL THINGS Pumpkin……
Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. 🙂
There is just something about a warm pumpkin treat on a crisp fall day. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to fall baking, one of the first ingredients I think of is pumpkin.
Everyone will love this Pumpkin Bread Recipe.
And what better recipe to start with then this recipe for pumpkin bread!
I hope your family loves this Pumpkin Bread recipe as much as mine did. By the way, if you are thinking you don’t really like things with pumpkin in it, you really need to give this recipe a try.
I promise it is not too pumpkin tasting at all (I have a dear friend who doesn’t care for pumpkin and she LOVED this bread – true story).
It is perfect for the pumpkin lover as well as those that are not too sure. Just try it and see!
As you can tell, we love all things Pumpkin and Pumpkin bread is just so classic. It’s the best recipe to start with for Fall baking!
There isn’t anything better than the smells of Fall wafting through the house. I love the smell of Pumpkin Bread baking in the house.
It smells divine. Sometimes, I will bake a loaf when company is coming over to make the house smell amazing.
This is the best bread and so moist and delicious. I could not stop eating this bread.
I’m sure we have all had Pumpkin Bread that was a little dry and less than memorable. Well, this is the Best Pumpkin Bread recipe ever!

We love these pans for Pumpkin Bread Recipe.
If you need a loaf pan, I highly recommend you purchase this one – I would purchase 2. I have 2, but sometimes I wish I had 4. 🙂
This is a regular sized pan which is what I used. However, you can turn this recipe and make them into smaller loaves which are super fun for gift ideas.
Wilton Recipe Right 4 Cavity Mini Loaf Pan is a great pan and you can use this entire recipe to fill up those 4 mini loaf pans.
The Baker’s Secret 8 Petite Loaf Pan is also fun for gift ideas. You can use this recipe to make these 8 petite pans as well
It is that easy!
That is it! I wasn’t kidding when I said it was easy. The pudding really gives this Pumpkin Bread recipe some added moistness. Try this and let us know what your family thought.
You can easily double this recipe and freeze one.
This recipe doubles very easily which allows you to use a whole can of pumpkin. Make them both and then freeze one.
That way when your family is begging for you to make another one you are already prepared. I love to make a bunch of the mini loaves and freeze them in freezer bags.
It’s very simple and always a hit. Plus, it is so convenient to just grab and go.
You can also freeze slices of this bread so that you only are taking out what you need at that moment.
This is perfect for those times when you do not need an entire loaf. Or maybe one child wants a slice but the other does not.
Just grab and go! We are all about quick and easy around here and saving money is a plus for sure!
Variations to try for this yummy Pumpkin Bread made with pudding mix:
Try some of these delicious variations for a classic twist on the traditional banana bread. My kids go crazy over this bread when I add chocolate chips to it.
It is amazing all by itself but goodness those chocolate chips really make it amazing! My favorite is walnuts in the banana bread. Yum!
It’s also good with both nuts and chocolate chips together. You really can’t go wrong with this delicious recipe for Pumpkin Bread.
You and your family will never get tired of this recipe for Pumpkin Bread with so many ideas to try. We just love this bread and it is always a hit.
Try Pumpkin Bread recipe for lunch box treats or after school snacks!
We all know how expensive all of those pre-packaged treats can be. They really add up over time and don’t go that far when your family is large like mine.
I like making homemade treats and it saves a ton of money. It also is a big hit with the kids.
One trick I have is to put slices of this Pumpkin Bread in ziploc bags. They will be all ready to grab for after school snacks, breakfast or lunchboxes.
I have found that if I do this, it’s just as handy as those expensive pre-packaged items you buy at the store. This gives me all the convenience without all the cost.
Plus, it just tastes SO much better.
Pumpkin Bread recipe with vanilla pudding makes a great gift!
This recipe is sure to impress and everyone will love this yummy recipe. The mini loaf pans make the perfect size to hand out as gifts.
We love to wrap these up and hand them out to neighbors, teachers and friends. It’s the perfect thing to show we care without spending a ton of money or time.
It is also great for Christmas when we want to do something for everyone but time and money just will not allow. People love this bread and I love being able to do things for those around me.
It’s the thought that counts and everyone always is so appreciative of these little loaves of pumpkin goodness.
The paper mini loaf pans do cost a little more but they are so pretty. I try to catch these on sale and keep some on hand for when I’m baking for others.
They just look so pretty when I’m giving these as gifts. Sometimes during the holidays you can find some of the paper pans all decked out for Christmas.
Do you prefer Pumpkin Bread recipe with canned pumpkin or Pumpkin Bread with fresh pumpkin?
They are both delicious and often it just comes down to time when I’m making this pumpkin bread recipe.
How do you make pumpkin puree from scratch?
If you prefer fresh pumpkin, learn how to make Pumpkin Puree. This is a great alternative to canned pumpkin.
You must give it a try if you have never made your own Pumpkin Puree before. It’s very simple.
I keep it in the freezer so I can just grab and go for recipes like this pumpkin bread. I freeze it in 1 cup increments and it’s so handy.
When I am baking something with pumpkin, it’s so nice to know it is already measured for me. All you need to do is remove the pumpkin puree from the freezer about 30 minutes before you need it and you will be set.
Once you learn how to make pumpkin puree, it’s very frugal. The cost of making your own is much less than buying cans of pumpkin at the store.
We also love to make our own Pumpkin Pie Spice for Pumpkin Bread recipe and other delicious pumpkin recipes.
Once you learn how to make Pumpkin Pie Spice, it is so simple. I make a big batch of this spice and keep it on hand for all my Fall baking.
I feel like it saves me money and it is very quick and easy to make. Once you make it, you will have lots on hand to use all Fall for any of these amazing pumpkin dishes.
However, once you start it’s so simple and easy!
