This Easy Pumpkin Bread Recipe is really flavorful and just as simple to pull together as banana bread. I use a stand mixer, but this could definitely be made by hand. Top with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of pumpkin spice or cinnamon and you have a really delicious fall dessert. Let me show you how to make it!
How to make my Easy Pumpkin Bread Recipe
I like to combine my dry ingredients in a bowl with a whisk. You’ll need:
- All purpose flour
- Ground Nutmeg
- Ground Ginger
- Baking Soda
- and Salt
In the bowl of a mixer, I added 100% pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling), milk and an egg.
Add melted butter that you have cooled to room temperature.
Prepare your mini baking pans with cooking spray. You will get about 6 depending on the size of your mini pan. My mini loaf pan is an older Wilton version and is probably discontinued. Here are a few options to choose from (*affiliate links)
CHEF’S NOTE: This recipe for Easy Pumpkin Bread fits a standard loaf pan if you’d prefer to use that instead.
Divide the batter evenly between your pans and smooth out a bit.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes, depending on your pan of choice and your oven.
If using a standard loaf pan, cooking time can be in excess of 60 minutes or more.
Remove to a rack to cool completely.
Can I freeze pumpkin bread?
Absolutely! Be sure the pumpkin bread is completely cool and them individually wrap them in foil to freeze. Take out, defrost and enjoy!
