Easy pumpkin bread recipe (SO good!)

Well other than a few days this week we have been in full fall mode here. It got up to around 80 yesterday but after today I think we're finally home free! Back to beautiful weather in the 60's and 70's -- my favorite. :)

Because I'm fully in the fall spirit, I was on the search for a good pumpkin bread recipe a few weeks ago. I found this super easy one online and of course had to share it with you. You know if I'm sharing a recipe it's SUPER yummy and REALLY easy. 

I made some slight adjustments -- I added apple pie spice and I didn't include walnuts. I think this would be SO good with raisins though, so I added those as an option.

Here's the recipe (grouped by how you mix them): 

1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp salt
1 c sugar
1 tsp baking soda

1 c pumpkin puree
1/2 c olive oil (canola or vegetable also works)
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 c water
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice

1/2 tsp apple pie spice
1/2 c walnuts
1/2 c raisins

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

2. You will need two bowls for this recipe. Sift the first four ingredients together in one bowl. 

3. In separate bowl combine the pumpkin, olive oil, eggs, water, spices and walnuts or raisins if desired.

4. Mix the two bowls together. Do not mix too much. Mine ends up not quite as thick as oatmeal: 

5. Pour into sprayed 9x5x3 loaf pan and bake 50 to 60 minutes. Or make muffins -- the mix makes 12 and they are perfect out of the oven at 25 minutes. You'll know they are done when you put a toothpick in to the bread/muffin and it comes out clean. 

I found this muffin tin a few weeks ago and it's perfect for this pumpkin bread!: 

I also found it online here -- it bakes them perfectly! 

I use an ice cream scoop to fill my tin so the batter doesn't get everywhere: 

Don't fill them all the way to the top and give the pan a few taps on the counter to get air bubbles out -- I forgot to do that this time! 

I'm telling you what...these come out SO good. They are moist and fluffy and just scrumptious

They take no time at all, especially if you're making the muffin version -- I've already whipped up two batches in the past week. If you like pumpkin even a little bit you will love this recipe. It's not an overwhelming pumpkin taste...just enough. And your house will smell like fall all day when you bake them. :) 

Here's an image you can pin for later if you'd like to make these as well!:

  1. I'm going to find a muffin tin like that and bake some pumpkin muffins for my Bible study ladies next week. If you haven't tried it, dried or fresh cranberries are delicious in pumpkin bread.

  2. I'm obsessed with that muffin tin! I'm going to have to pick one up before Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing!


  3. Where did you buy the pumpkin muffin tin? They're so cute! Gotta have some this week!

    1. HomeGoods but I link to it on Amazon in the post too. :)

  4. I've got this in the oven as we speak! It smells delicious! Your muffin tin is completely adorable. =)

  5. We use chocolate chips in lieu of raisins....
