My love for pumpkin is one that has definitely matured over the last couple of years.  I was never a big fan up until I met my boyfriend who is a borderline pumpkin fanatic.  Upon a recent trip to visit his parents, his mom made a cornucopia of baked goods to keep our mouths full and our tummies happy.  One of the things she made was this bread.  I ate probably two entire loaves to myself. 

I got the recipe from her, and she got the recipe from www.thefreshloaf.com, and now you are getting it from me and Instructables!  You are welcome!

Enjoy this over a cup of coffee with a pat of irish salted butter on top.  It doesn't get better than that on a Sunday morning!

Step 1: Ingredients

Yield: Makes ~ 12 muffins, 3 small loaves, or 2 large one
  • 16-ounce can pumpkin (2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3-4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
  • loaf pans (use what you got, i just grabbed some aluminum ones from the store, which actually are really great to reuse since the bread just slides right out!!)


This looks awesome! I'm so excited to make it. I don't usually put nuts in the breads I make but I love pecans so this is an exception ;)
love me some Pumpkin bread!
