Pumpkin Bread

Post-Halloween and October, it's usually safe to say that the "pumpkin madness" has died down a bit, but because it's still before Thanksgiving, I thought I'd post my mother's recipe for pumpkin bread. It was a such a huge hit when I brought it into work, my boss thought it was store-bought!


Pumpkin Bread (makes two loaves)
- 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin purée
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 3 cups sugar
- 2 tsp. soda
- 1 1/2 t salt
- 1 t cinnamon
- 1 t nutmeg
- 1 cup cooking oil
- 4 eggs
- 2/3 cup water
- 1 cup nuts (optional)

Sift together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Pour into three greased and floured 9x5-inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes


  1. Mmmmm. I haven't made pumpkin bread this season!


    Perfect I was looking to make a pumpkin recipe so going to try this

  3. I thought there is pumpkin in ingredients. It looked great and simple. My husband likes making bread (and I eat :)), I have bookmarked it for our collection. Thank you and have a lovely week!


    1. Sorry about that... I don't know how I forgot to write that in! :)

  4. I made pumpkin cupcakes the other day, we ate them so fast... I'm planning on making more this week!
    btw, through my blog I sell new & recycled high-end fashion at great starting prices, all the way from Philadelphia!
