Mom’s Pumpkin Bread Recipe

My mom is one of the best homemade bakers that I know. When I was around 13 years old, she brought me into the kitchen and taught me how to bake. Over the years I’ve used her recipes and mastered the art of making homemade cakes, cookies, pies, muffins and bread.

Every year from late October through the end of December I’ll make several loaves of homemade pumpkin bread. Some of these loaves my family will eat and others I’ll take to work for my co-workers to enjoy. Every time I make pumpkin bread, I use my mom’s recipe. Thanks Mom!

This recipe makes a very flavorful and moist pumpkin bread. You can use store-bought pumpkin puree or your own that's made from scratch.
  • 2½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable cooking oil
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 3⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • ⅔ cup water
  • 15 ounces canned pumpkin puree
  • non-stick baking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray the bottom and sides of your loaf pan. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat together the granulated sugar and vegetable oil with an electric mixer. Add in the medium eggs and beat again. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl sift together the all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt, until all three are well-combined together.
  4. Alternately add the flour mixture and water to the beaten sugar mixture. Beat after each addition until just combined. Beat in the pumpkin puree until all ingredients are combined.
  5. Use a large spoon and spoon the batter into your prepared loaf pans. Place them in a preheated oven and bake for 22 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the baking pans that you used. Remove from oven and let cool.

    This pumpkin bread recipe should be good for the entire family. I would love to make it.

  2. Lucky you, to have had such a proficient baker to learn from! This pumpkin bread looks great. I have yet to settle on a go-to pumpkin bread recipe, so I’ll likely be giving this tried-and-true recipe a try (although I don’t generally have medium eggs on hand, so I’ll use 3 large instead of 4 medium). Thank you!

  4. I’m a huge fan of banana bread but I’ve never made pumpkin bread. I think it would be great to get you in the fall mood.

  5. Sometimes nothing can beat a moms recipe! This bread looks soooo good!

  6. This sounds like a great recipe. I think it would be delicious with some cinnamon in it too! Thanks for sharing! I like the tried and true recipes.
