Pumpkin Spice Bread

First I want to wish best of luck to those in New Jersey and New York.  I hope everyone will have power and get back to their normal lives as soon as possible!

This is a simple post.  Pumpkin bread is delicious.  This is a recipe I have had years of success with.  If you are having house guests or need a hostess gift for something in the next month, made this bread.  If you are not having house guests, or do not need a hostess gift, make this bread.  Enjoy the pumpkin season!

Pumpkin Spice Bread

Makes 2 9 x 5 loaves, recipe from Epicurious


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 16-ounce can solid pack pumpkin
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.  Prepare two 9 x 5 loaf pans with parchment and nonstick spray.
  2. Combine flour, spices, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. (you can substitute the multiple spices for pumpkin pie spice if you have it.)
  3. Wisk together oil and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time, then the pumpkin.
  4. Add dry ingredients in slowly.  Add in chopped walnuts if you want.
  5. Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the tester comes out clean.
