I happen to make it one to three times a week, maybe more, during these fall months. I eat it, my family eats it, my friends eat it, my dogs eat it…it goes pretty quick! During the few months it’s in season, I overload on it, so I’m pretty much sick of it until next fall! It’s a good thing I suppose! Get it out of my system for the remainder of the year!  

Quick & Easy

On the plus side, it’s a quick easy, one bowl, no mixer, pumpkin bread that is absolutely incredible. It’s moist and tender with a soft texture bursting with traditional pumpkin spice flavors. Seriously, it’s the best pumpkin bread! Better than most I’ve ever tried! It’s amazing and my go-to recipe. Also, it can be thrown together in a matter of minutes, although baking it takes an hour or so, but on the bright side… fewer dishes and more time for yum! 

Pumpkin bread ingredients

Let’s Start Baking Some Pumpkin Bread

Turn on your oven, get one large bowl out and get baking! It’s a simple basic pumpkin bread recipe. 

  • To start, there is no creaming required. Simply stir together vegetable or canola oil with the sugar. Coconut oil works well too! 
  • Next, add the sugars. On a side note about the sugars – take one bite and you’ll notice it has a surprising depth of flavor. It has just a bit of dark brown sugar to give it a very faint taste of molasses. Sometimes I even add a tablespoon of molasses more just because I think it gives it more body and flavor. 
  • Next, add the eggs and pumpkin, stir to combine completely. 
  • Add all of the dry ingredients, including the spices, and incorporate well. 
  • Lastly, add the milk! Don’t forget this ingredient! I tend to sometimes. 
  • If you like nuts and chocolate chips in your pumpkin bread, feel free to add them at this point. It’s not my thing, but cater to your liking! 
  • Top it off with sugar in the raw before it bakes. Totally optional, but it gives it a nice crunchy exterior and a pop of extra sweetness. It’s my favorite part of the bread!

It’s fall in your mouth and is the one recipe you must have this season! Make it, bake it, share it, eat it! It will definitely be a recipe you’ll love for many, many years!
