Pumpkin Bread



Keeping in theme with my current obsession with pumpkin recipes (like the delicious pumpkin cupcakes and the wonderful pumpkin cream cheese muffins), I found this recipe on allrecipes.com.  It had more than 3700 reviews, and still maintained it's 5-star rating! 


This recipe makes two pumpkin loaves, and is absolutely delicious.  The only modification I made was to substitute the oil with margarine and apple sauce.




A bonus is that this recipe freezes really well, if the second loaf even makes it to the freezer!


Pumpkin Bread

  • 2 cups pureed pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup softened butter or margarine
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and grease & flour two loaf pans
  2. Mix together the pumpkin, eggs, applesauce, margarine, water and sugar 
  3. In a second bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger
  4. Add the dry ingredients into the wet, and mix well
  5. Pour half into each pan, and level the batter with a spatula or spoon
  6. Bake for 45 - 60 minutes, or until a toothpick (or skewer) comes out clean when inserted into the center of a loaf
  7. Let cool for at least 30 minutes, then the loaves should easily come out of the pans
  8. Enjoy!
