This is the BEST Pumpkin Bread recipe ever! The recipe calls for 1 can of pumpkin and makes 2 loaves. It’s perfectly spiced and easy to make, too!
Fall is here, and that means it’s Pumpkin Bread season! No Fall is complete without my mom’s Pumpkin Pie-Spiced Pumpkin Bread! It uses 1 can of pumpkin and makes 2 loaves.
My mom has stayed with us the last couple of weeks to help out as we adjust to life with our new little one, and I have taken the opportunity to have her make her famous Pumpkin Bread recipe for us. We may have even had it for dinner the day she made it. No, seriously…we did. 🙂
My mom has made this recipe for at least 20 years, and it is perfect; there’s no need to search for another recipe!
- My family likes to top slices of pumpkin bread with a little cream cheese…delicious!
- This recipe makes 2 large loaves; save one for your family and give one away to a friend or neighbor! Or just eat a loaf for dinner as we did and save the other one for later. 🙂
- The pumpkin bread will keep covered at room temperature for up to 5 days.

I am roasting a pumpkin RIGHT now and I’m seriously thinking of making this recipe instead on what I had planned to make! Love this. Thanks for posting!
Yum, I’ve never roasted my own pumpkin…but I just might now! I hope you enjoyed the pumpkin bread. 🙂
Just made these! Subbed buttermilk for water and added a maple glaze. DEE-Lish! Thanks for a recipe that makes two loaves.
Fantastic, so glad you enjoyed the pumpkin bread! 🙂
Going to try making these soon! I need to get myself some loaf pans, though. What size pans did you use here?
I used a standard loaf pan that measures 9″ x 5″.,
Happy Baking 🙂

In most of the pumpkin bread recipes, they use either baking soda or baking powder. But your recipe uses both…should I does it matter? Would appreciate a response on this please
I can’t speak for other pumpkin bread recipes because this is the only one I have ever made. This is my mom’s recipe that she’s been making for over 25 years. With that said, yes, definitely use baking powder and baking soda as specified in the recipe. I hope this answers your questions. Enjoy! 🙂
yummy in like this
