Pumpkin Bread

This recipe is easy, always comes out moist, and is tasty! It makes 2 loaves and freezes well.

This was the first blog I did when I signed up for Sugar. I didn't belong to any groups then, and also recently remade it, so I thought I'd repost it, now that I belong to KG, in time for fall :)

Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread


2 cup canned pumpkin
3 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
4 eggs
3.5 cup flour
2 Tbsp baking soda*
1.5 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp Nutmeg
1/2 Tbsp ginger powder


Preheat oven at 350.
Grease and flour two 9x5 or 8x4 loaf pans. Blend first 5 ingredients (pumpkin, sugar, oil, water, eggs) and beat for 1 minute on medium.
Add remaining ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger) and blend on low speed until moistened. Then beat for one minute on medium speed.
*NOTE: Make sure to sprinkle baking soda evenly when you add it to the batter.
Pour into pans, and bake 60-70 minutes.

Let cool for 5 minutes and remove from pan.

You're right, karma, and it just came out the same. I don't know why it didn't work out for you :?

Yeah.. but since you've made this so much I'm sure you know that it actually is 1.5 TBSP.. I wish I could figure out what went wrong though because I want to make this recipe.. grrr.

It is weird :? I have to make it again to check it out. My bf is excited about that, though, since he finished the last loaf the other day.

I know right.. I was all excited for this dern pumpkin bread too!!! :rotfl: How odd.. Well we don't have a hand mixer anymore (it was a UK mixer so they left it in London) so I just mixed it by hand.. but I know I measured the salt amount correctly and made sure it was mixed in well :? Who knows, must be one of those weird thing!

Oops - I meant I used 1.5 Tbsp. as directed. Followed everything to a T, and it was perfect. Weird!
wren1 wren1 7 years 30 weeks
Oh No, karma! I just looked, and the recipe does say Tbsp. I've made this so many times and have never had a problem. I'll make it again next week to check into that. (maybe I've been using tsp instead of Tbsp??) I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. What a bummer :(
karmasabitch karmasabitch 7 years 30 weeks
Yeah this recipe here says 1.5 Tbsp.. :shrug: It was moist and I could tell it would be awesome minus the salty taste.. my dad tried it and we both agreed it had to be throw out :( But I will say I've never used to much salt in any baking recipe before :shrug: the pumpkin bread I made this morning had 1 tsp I think.

That's weird, Karma. I used 1 Tbsp. as directed, and it was fine. And, I don't ever salt ANYTHING, so if stuff is even remotely salty, I pick up on it and do not like.
karmasabitch karmasabitch 7 years 30 weeks
OK.. so I bought all of the ingredients, made this, and it was a total flop I had to throw it away :( Your recipe says 1.5 TBSP salt which I thought was waaaay too much but I also thought how the heck could that be copied wrong.. so I used it and it was way salty :cry: What a bummer I was sooo looking forward to this! Anyway I woke up this morning and made the pumpkin bread from one of my cookbooks so all is well in the universe :pepino: Did you mean 1.5 tsp?

I made this last night, and it is easy and delicious! I'll take the second loaf to my MILNIL, and she'll be thrilled.

Finn- You can make some pumpkin stuff!!! PW has a recipe that is so easy to make. I will be trying it to make pumpkin pie and now this bread. As long as you can get pumpkins where you are, I guess that would help huh?

Damn this post! Damn it! Jackson is napping, so I can't go to the store and get all the stuff to make this. I will have to do it tomorrow, but my pregnant ass is seriously craving some delicious pumpkin bread right now. :rotfl:
