Pumpkin Spice Bread {Autumn Recipe}

Autumn is definitely my favorite season! The weather starts to get a little bit cooler and the air more crisp. I can start pulling out the sweaters and the boots, and my favorite varieties of winter squash are in season, including pumpkin.

During this time of the year, I tend to go on a baking frenzy, and one of my absolute favorite things to make is pumpkin spice loaf. I am a fanatic when it comes to anything pumpkin, and this sweet and spicy loaf is no exception. It’s great with morning coffee, in the afternoon with a nice hot cup of tea, or at night with a tall glass of ice cold milk.

Pumpkin Spice Bread Recipe


  • 3 Cups of Flour (All-Purpose or Wheat)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon of Ground Cloves
  • 1 Teaspoon of Ground Nutmeg
  • 2 Teaspoons of Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/3 to 1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup of White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Butter (Melted or Really Soft)
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 Can of Pumpkin Puree (15 Ounce)
  • 1/3 Cup of Milk (optional, without milk the loaf will have a more dense texture. If you include milk the load will be fluffier. It all depends on your preference. Both types come out tasty)

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚
  2. Grease one large loaf pan (or two medium loaf pans)
  3. In a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, and granulated sugar).
  4. In a separate medium size bowl beat together the eggs.
  5. Add butter to eggs and cream together
  6. Add the milk (if using) and pumpkin purée into the egg and butter mixture
  7. Fold in the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and gently mix until everything is evenly combined
  8. Pour the batter into the greased pan/pans
  9. Bake for about 50 minutes (time can vary by oven) or until you can stick a toothpick or knife in the center and it comes out clean.

This makes one large loaf or two medium loaves. If you want a smaller serving, you can make one medium loaf by just halving this recipe.
