Easy classic pumpkin bread with a dash of pumpkin spices. A loaf of bread that stays soft and moist in the next day too. Dairy free, nut free.
The fall season is full of flavors and pumpkin on everything. The fact that I can find pumpkin in every corner including the drink has pumpkin spice too. I think it doesn’t make me get bored with orange color as a staple of the fall season. It brightens up my days when the temperature of the day gets cooler. The fall season in where I live now always change regularly, sometimes it gets very nice, a bit warmer, colorful trees, then suddenly it turns into a snowy day in the very next day up to 8 inches snow overnight, then back to warmer again.

Anyway, the fall season is not complete with pumpkin recipe. One of my favorite ones is this dairy-free Pumpkin Bread. It is so easy to make, contain all lovely spices, and it also perfect to toast it in the next few days if there is any left.
Besides making bread, I also like to make this Baked Butternut Squash Donuts, and the spice was just perfect!
I use canned pumpkin purée for the recipe. From one batch, you will get two loaves of bread. If you are okay with nuts, you can add any nuts you like. One of my daughters has a nut allergy, so adding seed is better for our current situation, just like this Pumpkin Sunflower Cookie Bars
- 2 cup sugar
- 2 egg
- 1 cup oil
- 1 can ( 15 oz) pumpkin puree or 2 cups minus 2 1/2 tbsp
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp clove powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1 tsp nutmeg powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp ginger powder
- 2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Prepare the loaf pans, spray it with nonstick spray or line it with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, beat the sugar and egg until light and fluffy for a few minutes.
Add oil, pumpkin puree, baking powder, baking soda, clove powder, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, ginger powder and salt, mix it until it just combined.
Add flour, mix it until well blended.
Pour the batter into prepared loaf pans, bake it for 40 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.
Leave it cool in the pan for ten minutes before transfer it to a cooling rack.
- If you are up to making pumpkin purée from scratch, roast the pumpkin on 400° F for 30 - 40 minutes. Then use blender or food processor to make purée.
- 15 oz pumpkin puree is about 2 cups then take it out about 2 1/2 tbsp.
I store the bread in room temperature uncovered, and it is still moist up to three days if it last that long. It even tastes better when you toast it for a minute until the edge is a little bit crispy but the middle still soft.
