A Recipe for Perfection

The first bite will tell you everything you need to know. This Perfect Pumpkin Bread really lives up to its name. With a dense, moist inside and a slightly crackly crust, sinking your teeth into this super easy quick bread is so satisfying. And it tastes amazing! Not too sweet, perfectly spiced, and with a swipe of butter it’s delicious, comforting and well, perfect.

Great ingredients make for great bread. Pumpkin is wonderful for baking because it turns out such moist breads and cookies. Eggs make this bread dense and hardy, and a little bit of sugar makes it taste a wee bit indulgent. That right there is a recipe for perfection. In my humble opinion. 😜

How to Make Perfect Pumpkin Bread

First, preheat oven to 350°F. Then lightly grease and flour a two 9×5-inch loaf pans and set aside. While the oven heats, mix dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Once well-blended, make a well in the center. Next, add the eggs, pumpkin, oil and water to the well and mix thoroughly.

Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans and place on the center rack in the oven. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until baked all the way through.

This is such a great loaf to bake for breakfast, snacking and gifting all throughout fall. I love baking several loaves at once so I can keep a few for my pumpkin bread loving family and gift some to neighbors and friends. There’s just something so lovely about a fresh baked loaf of pumpkin bread.

  1. Dear Baker Mama,
    Thank you for this pumpkin bread recipe! Looking forward to trying it. However in the description it mentioned maple syrup.. I don’t see it on the ingredients?
    I live in Texas and just returned from a lovely fall trip with my daughters to the King Arthur Flour baking school in Vermont. We picked up Vermont maple syrup and are anxious to try it in your recipe.
    Thank you kindly! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your darling family!
    Sincerely,
    Janie Luppi

  2. Dear Meagan,
    This is the second time I’ve made this Pumpkin Bread in a Month. I added Chocolate Chips too.
    I was told it was better then Costco Pumpkin Bread.
    Everyone Loved it ! 🙂
    I made two move loaves tonight for Thanksgiving tomorrow.
    Happy Thanksgiving & God Bless
    Patti
