The best pumpkin bread recipe out there—an old family recipe that we can never get enough of!

Ingredients

why can’t you cook both loaves at the same time? And what do you do with the other loaf, while the one is cooking? Fridge? Counter?

Excellent cake! I made this for the first time last night. We loved it yesterday and it was great with a cup of coffee this morning. Very simple and quick to mix up. It has great texture and wonderful flavor. I made only two changes: I cut the sugar to 2 cups and didn’t have any pumpkin pie spice, so I added cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger. I baked it in a bundt pan for an hour. I was tempted to add raisins or pecans but this is a fine cake on it’s own. Next time, I may make a glaze (maple, etc) but again it doesn’t really need it.

I love, love that this recipe is so fast and easy to make. I don’t think I even needed my hand mixer. Just because it’s easy doesn’t mean it’s not absolutely wonderful! It’s moist and delicious! Next time I will cut the sugar a little, maybe use only 2 cups. I will also use loaf pans lined with parchment paper. I used a bundt pan and had a hard time getting it out, even though I sprayed it with a lot of PAM. Almost forgot, I added 1.5 cups of chocolate chips, because chocolate and pumpkin are oh-so good together! :) Thanks for posting!

This recipe is so good and easy! I halved the sugar and it was still great! I’ve used butter instead of oil and then once I used coconut oil (pantry was getting bare. No matter what I have tried, this recipe always turns out great!

Super simple recipe with delicious results. I baked mine about 8 minutes longer than the recipe indicated, but other than that-perfect! My 3 year and 1 year old girls will not stop eating it!
