  • ▢1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • ▢1 tsp baking soda
  • ▢1/2 tsp baking powder
  • ▢1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ▢1 tsp nutmeg
  • ▢1/2 tsp ginger
  • ▢1 tsp salt
  • ▢1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin
  • ▢1 1/2 cups sugar
  • ▢2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ▢1/2 cup vegetable oil , or canola oil
  • ▢1/2 cup melted butter
  • ▢2 eggs


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the flour, baking soda and baking powder, spices and salt. Set aside
  • Combine the oil, butter and vanilla in a liquid measuring cup.
  • In a mixing bowl with a fitted paddle attachment, beat the pumpkin, sugar and eggs until combined.
  • Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the liquid ingredients. Let this process take about 1 to 2 minutes so the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
  • Using a spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the wet and slowly fold until the ingredients are blended. ( I added 1/2 cup nuts}

Prepare a 10 x 5 loaf pan by buttering it really well and then adding a strip of parchment paper to the bottom and up the sides for easy removal.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour. The bread will be fully risen in the center, like a loaf. Make sure it’s fully cooked and brown on the top otherwise it will fall in the middle once removed from the oven.

Recipe History


  • Measure all of the ingredients before. Liquid in one measuring cup, dry in a mixing bowl.
  • Always use high quality ingredients when baking. Whole, organic eggs, full fat butter, pure vanilla extract. This all makes a difference in the quality of the pumpkin bread.
  • When adding the oil, butter and vanilla, add it very slowly with the mixer running to incorporate air into the mixture.
  • Remember that true oven temperature and the material of the loaf pan you’re using will influence the baking time.
  • If adding in chocolate chips or nuts, fold them in when folding in the dry ingredient
