  • Be sure you buy pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.
  • If you can not eat a whole loaf of pumpkin bread, then make this recipe in cupcake tins. You can easily freeze any extras in an airtight ziplock freezer bag.
  • So your bread does not stick, it is best to spray your loaf pan with non-sticking cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper.


  • I like to add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to my batter.
  • Pecans or walnuts would also be delicious in pumpkin bread.
  • Cut your bread into squares and top with cream cheese frosting for delicious treats.
