Ingredients: 

  • All Purpose Flour

  • Baking Powder

  • Pumpkin Purée (14 oz can) 
  • Granulated Sugar 
  • Brown Sugar, packed 
  • Eggs, Beaten 
  • Vegetable Oil 
  • Vanilla Extract

How to Make Starbucks Pumpkin Bread at Home: 

  • Prepare oven and loaf pan – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 9X5 loaf pan with a non-stick cooking spray.

  • Beat Wet Ingredients – In a separate large bowl, beat together the wet ingredients. Combine eggs, vegetable oil, pumpkin purée, sugar and brown sugar and vanilla extract until combined and smooth. 
  • Mix dry and wet ingredients together – Then add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined, being careful not to over mix. It’s ok if the batter is a little bit lumpy.  I mix this batter by hand to prevent any over mixing. 
  • Add batter to pan – Pour the batter into a prepared loaf pan and sprinkle the pepitas evenly on top of the batter in the pan.

  • Bake Bread – Bake for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. 
  • Check Bread – Check the bread after 40 minutes and if the top is getting too brown, cover it loosely with a piece of foil to prevent further browning. 
  • Cool, Serve and Enjoy – Let the bread cool for 10-15 minutes in the pan.  Then carefully remove the bread from the loaf pan and transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Bread Tips:

  • Pumpkin Pie Spice – We love the flavors of pumpkin pie spice. Pumpkin pie spice is so easy to make that you can make your own. You can combine the dry ingredients of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and clove.
  • Pumpkin Puree – When making this recipe, use pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin puree is just pumpkin and no other added ingredients.
  • Loaf Pan – We used a 9×5 loaf pan for this recipe but you can also use mini loaf pans. If you giving these as gifts, the mini loaf pans work great.
  • Pumpkin Seeds – If you prefer not to top the pumpkin bread with pumpkin seeds, you can just use granulated sugar.
  • Don’t Overmix – Mix the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls. Then mix together but do not overmix. I like to mix by hand so that I do not over mix. The batter will be lumpy.
  • Check for Doneness – To check the bread to see if it is done, insert toothpick in the center of the bread. If toothpick comes out clean, the bread is done.
