You know the seasons are starting to change when this family-favorite recipe is brought out of the recipe box once again. Emma cracked eggs (and picked out shells. a. lot. of. shells.) while I worked on dry ingredients and managed my radio station. (thank you, Jo) I can’t stop playing with this thing.
Thankfully, the recipe makes two loaves. A more responsible family might eat one loaf and freeze the second for another time. Not this family. Usually, it’s eat half of the first one after dinner, pound the rest at breakfast. Break into the second loaf by midafternoon the next day.
Thank goodness there was enough left to accompany a morning cup of tea to soothe my stuffy head and scratchy throat.
3c sugar 1t each:
1c oil ground cloves
4 eggs cinnamon
1 can of pumpkin nutmeg
2/3c water allspice
2 1/2c flour
1/2t. baking powder
2t baking soda
Mix together sugar, oil and eggs. Add pumpkin and water. Sift together and add dry ingredients and spices. Pour into two (regular sized) loaf pans lined with parchment paper. (cooking spray works, too). Cook at 350degrees for one hour. (less for glass loaf pans). Freezes well, if it lasts that long.

Oh I was just thinking I would make pumpkin bread with my little one today. Now i don’t have to find a recipe.
yep, it’s definitely pumpkin bread season – hooray!
My bread today was going to be banana but mmmm maybe pumpkin instead.
Thought you were very brave letting little E crack eggs right beside your mac – I don’t think I could be so trusting 😉
Yum, Yum, YUM!
I’m definitely book-marking this one, it looks and sounds delish…
(and I do hope that it has special curative powers, to banish stuffy heads and scratchy throats for you!)
thank you molly. just what i needed since i am in a baking sort of mood these days!
Mmmmmmmmm… Perfect for Fall.(I love Pandora!)
Okay, I checked out Pandora.OH. MY.I can sense that this will be my new vice. Thanks!
Looks delicious, thanks for sharing the recipe. I just baked some banana bread yesterday, but I think I’m going to have to try out your recipe later this week.
Mmm… Everyone’s fall baking is driving me crazy! I need to get crackin’. Is this recipe for two regular loafs or mini-loafs?
Last week we made banana bread and zuchini bread (the kids call it cucumber bread) so thanks for keeping us going this week with this little gem.
will be baking this soon. perhaps it will bring the fall weather with it??
Pumpkin bread is so good. I’ve got to make me some this week.
ayup. making this soon. (as soon as the temps fall back to the bone-chilling 60’s 🙂
Oh Molly that looks sooo good and I agree with your little one can you cut me a piece too from that loaf?
this sounds really really good. Between homemade pretzels and this, I’m going to be the size of a house very soon!
Thanks for the recipe…..can I use this for making pumpkin muffins?
Oh, thank you so much for sharing your recipe. As the weather here in Southern California is only starting to change slightly, I want to wait a few more weeks until I am really in the fall mood. But this will be the first on my list of homemade goodies!
Now my husband tells me Pandora sucks up lots of bandwidth – so beware if you leave it on whilst doing the dishes (like I did…)
mmm, sounds so delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe. It is far, far from fall-ish here. It will still be in the 90s for about the next two months. We may get some coolish weather in Dec. but more likely in Jan. I love to crank up the a/c though and pretend like the cold is coming from outside! Perfect for the intoxicating smell of baking pumpkin bread….
