How To Make Quick & Easy Pumpkin Bread

  1. Grease and flour a loaf pan, and preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Whisk the dry ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl (flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt).
  3. Using a handheld or stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar at medium speed, until soft and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs and pumpkin puree and beat until smooth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Use Pumpkin Puree Instead Of Canned?

Yes, you can, but make sure it is not too watery. If you feel it has too much moisture, strain it through a cheesecloth.

What Can I Add To Make It More Flavorful?

You can add chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or dried cranberries.

Can I Make This Recipe Into Muffins?

Yes, you can! Just remember that the cooking time will vary. It will be around 30-35 mins.

How Do I Store Pumpkin Bread?

This bread keeps in good condition wrapped in plastic wrap for up to 3 days, or you can freeze it for up to 3 months.

The Top Of My Bread Cracks, Is This Normal?

It is! Actually, it cracks when baked properly. Sometimes if it doesn’t crack, this means the bread might be undercooked.

My Bread Is Too Dry, Why?

It is overcooked. Next time start checking it 10 minutes before the cooking time is over.

Can I Make This Recipe Gluten-Free?

You can! Replace the all-purpose flour with gluten-free flour in a 1:1 ratio.

Can I Reduce The Amount Of Sugar In This Recipe?
