Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin bread is perfect for the fall and holidays. This delicious pumpkin bread is one of my favorites to make this time of year!

Pumpkin Bread

This is a recipe my sisters and I have made for years. I can’t even begin to count how many loaves of this I have made over the years. I have made it for my family. I have taken it to many holiday events. And I have given many loaves as gifts. That is how much I love this recipe.

A couple of weeks ago I posted a recipe for one of my favorite pumpkin breads. It is my favorite for everyday, but today I am posting my favorite holiday pumpkin bread. This bread is really good. It is not very healthy, but so very good.

Pumpkin Bread

This bread is a treat. It is more dessert and cake like. My kids have been known to eat it for breakfast, but it is more of a dessert or a breakfast treat.

I have been making this recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas for years. My sister first made this recipe years ago and it has become a must make for our whole family. It is adapted from a 1998 Taste of Home magazine and we love it!

    This sounds WONDERFUL! Thank you for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I have never tried pumpkin bread before and I’m not sure why. This sounds so delicious though!

    I have been gathering pumpkin recipes for weeks now, and I thought I was done until I saw this recipe. This sounds, and looks, so delicious.

  4. I’m drooling over the pumpkin recipes today now. Question: How would I sub for the boxed puddings, just put all by the wet ingredients in? Now that I am in love with your homemade pudding, I don’t think I can buy another box of pudding again. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • This is one of the few things I actually buy boxed pudding for. I never make it up as it should be, but it is what I think makes this bread so good. You add it to the batter dry, so I don’t think just subbing the homemade pudding in it’s place would work sorry. But I am really glad that you like my homemade pudding!

      • Thanks. I wasn’t clear enough in my previous note, I guess. LOL. I meant, would I just use the dry mix ingredients from the pudding mix only. I think I might try it that way.

        • I am sorry that I misunderstood you. Yes, you just mix the dry pudding mix in, you do not make up the pudding you just add it dry to the other ingredients.

  5. You mention “cook and serve” pudding for this recipe. This is NOT instant pudding? I’m used to adding instant pudding to recipes so I want to double check. Thank you for the wonderful recipes. I’m anxious to try this Pumpkin Bread!

  6. I made one called Spiced Pumpkin Bread that everyone has been raving about. It’s wonderful and very unusual in that it has black pepper in it. I now have orders for 15 loaves. Thank God I made a lot of pumpkin puree this year.

  7. This looks delicious. Can I add chocolate chips to it? Have you tried doing it? I have one don whose absolute favorite bread is pumpkin chocolate chip. Thanks!

  8. My husband balked at the vanilla pudding. (He detests vanilla.) I made it (GF) using lemon pudding and I omitted the cinnamon. Turned out great. More lemon flavored than pumpkin, but that’s okay.
