Spiced Pumpkin Bread


A pumpkin loaf spiced with cinnamon, ground cloves, and nutmeg. I came up with this recipe after many failed attempts at pumpkin loaf. I adapted a favorite banana loaf recipe and this was the result. Yum! This recipe yields 3 loaves. Stock your freezer!

Original recipe makes 3 loaves


1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup butter, melted
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups pumpkin puree
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix white sugar, brown sugar, and melted butter together in a large bowl. Stir in eggs and vanilla extract; mix in pumpkin until thoroughly combined.
  3. Whisk flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cloves, and salt together in a separate bowl. Mix flour mixture into pumpkin mixture until incorporated. Pour batter into three 5×9-inch loaf pans. Smooth batter evenly in each pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle of each loaf comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.
