Pumpkin Bread

This time of year I really enjoy baking with pumpkin. You can probably tell that by all the pumpkin recipes that I have been posting. Stay tuned for a pumpkin soup next week. This however, is one of my favorite pumpkin breads to make. It also makes a great holiday treat or food gift to give away

I found this recipe on Allrecipes a few years ago and I have adapted it some of the years. We really enjoy this recipe. We eat it for a dessert. It is not exactly a healthy recipe because it has a lot of sugar in it. I have tried cutting back the sugar and it is just not the same.

I have made it healthier by using part whole wheat pastry flour. The original recipe calls for 3 1/2 cups regular all purpose flour, so you can make it either way and it will be great.

  1. I have been making this recipe for years (with white flour or wheat flour I grind myself) and it is so good. I actually have 2 loaves in the freezer right now! :)

  2. I love this recipe but I would like to know how much sugar substitute like splendor would I use. Your recipe calls for ( 3 ) cups of sugar. And I would like to know if you have a recipe for pumpkin spice Bread.

  3. I just noticed that you don’t list nutmeg, but mention it in the directions. I have bread in oven right now, so well see how it turns out without nutmeg.

    • It will turn out fine, my husband hates nutmeg, so I always leave it out. That is why it is not in the ingredient list. I just forgot to take it out of the direction part. I love nutmeg and think it is great in this, I just leave it out since my husband won’t touch it if I make it with nutmeg. I hope you enjoy the bread. And thanks for letting me know that I forgot that.
