Pumpkin bread recipe

I am going to copy/paste the recipe here but this is where I actually found it as it is not mine.

I noticed, however, while baking this recipe that towards the end, the top of my loaf looked ready but by testing (inserting a fork in the middle), the batter was still raw! I took the loaves out of the oven and covered with aluminium foil and put them back in to bake.

Without further adieu, here is the recipe:


  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups solid pack pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two loaf pans.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and cloves.
  3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, blend sugar, oil and eggs. Stir in pumpkin. Slowly blend the flour mixture into pumpkin mixture. While blending the mixture add water incrementally. Pour the batter into two prepared loaf pans.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 90 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pans.
Recipe was found here:

I did not use cloves as I did not have any and I did not use store bought pumpkin puree. I had some leftover in my freezer! Last fall, my family and I went pumpkin picking. I remember the day very well. We got rained on and the rain stopped just as we were finished getting our pumpkins. The ride was off-island and was a good 45 minute drive from my house. We were tired, soaked, and damp but in good spirits. As a result, I failed to make sure my son closed my car door properly. My car was left like this for 3 days until I went to use it and realized my battery was completely drained. In fact, I had to get a new one! I am happy these pumpkin loaves were a huge success, especially with all the trouble I had getting the pumpkin! I was well rewarded with taste as well as being able to revel in the wondrous aroma of baked pumpkin in my home!



  1. Wow -- right from scratch! That's going above and beyond. The loaves look delicious.

  2. mmmmm I can smell it from here :D
    Your loaves look absolutely scrumptious!!!
