Delicious Pumpkin Walnut Bread Recipe: Not Just for the Holidays!

My husband and I are what could be called foodies. We enjoy sampling and discovering new and different foods from all areas of the world.

Savory Sweet Breads

While all of the many decorative pumpkins that once graced just about every garden nursery and grocery store in the Autumn season of the year are long gone, one need not forget the pumpkin and what can be done with this ingredient until next year.

Who can forget those annual pumpkin patches in church lots where families traditionally take their small children for photo opportunities before taking home a chosen pumpkin to draw upon or carve for Halloween festivities?

Just like the sweet photos that can be enjoyed long after the day of photography has passed, fortunately for us, seasonal, fresh pumpkins are also typically preserved by canning and are available to us year-round.

I was going through my mother's recipe files yesterday and came upon a pumpkin bread recipe given to her by one of her good friends who used to live in San Antonio, Texas and whom I had met. I decided to try it and it turned out to be a delicious "keeper" recipe. I know that I will be making it again and thought that I would share it with you.

Health Benefits of Consuming Pumpkin

It is easy to find many well written excellent articles pertaining to the health benefits of both the pumpkin and also its seeds, so instead of recanting those statistics, suffice it to say in brief that pumpkin . . . like it says right on the Libby can . . . is an "Excellent Source of Vitamin A and Fiber" and is also "Low in Calories and Fat."

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 oz or 425 g) of pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup salad oil ( I used light olive oil )
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 1/3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • Nuts if desired ( I used 2/3 cup ground walnuts )

Easy Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix the sugar, salad oil, eggs, pumpkin, and water together and blend well. Note: Although the recipe did not call for it, I sifted the flour and spices together.
  2. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture saving a bit of the flour mixture to mix with the nuts.
  3. Add the nuts mixed with the remaining flour at the end and pour it into greased bread pans to bake. I spray my bread pans with Pam.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out dry.
  5. Makes 2 large loaves, 4 medium loaves or 6 small loaves of pumpkin bread.
  6. Enjoy the pumpkin bread warm out of the oven or cooled. It is delicious either way!

Hi Robert,

You are most welcome. Glad that you liked the pumpkin bread.

Robert Sacchi on January 20, 2020:

Thank you for posting the article,

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on January 19, 2020:

Hi Robert,

I am pleased that you tried this recipe and liked the end result. Thanks for letting me know.

Robert Sacchi on January 19, 2020:

I gave this a try today. I was under pressure to get rid of some pumpkin. It went well. Thank you this really came through.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 20, 2019:

Hi Patricia,

In using some recipe, (not this one), I ended up with about 1/4 of a can of pumpkin left. I added it to oatmeal and put in some cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves, as well as some nuts. I also added a little bit of honey. Wow! It was delicious! It takes oatmeal to another level.

Patricia Scott on November 20, 2019:

Pumpkin is one of my favorite foods to work with when cooking. I have still not tried this recipe but hope to take to Thanksgiving dinner this year. I can almost smell it baking. Yum Angels once again are on the way. ps

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on September 18, 2019:

Greetings Abitha,

This pumpkin walnut bread recipe is indeed easy to make and very flavorful. Hope you enjoy it!

Abitha Deepak on September 18, 2019:

Peggy,

This looks like an easy, delicious and healthy recipe to make - will definitely bake this soon!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on December 02, 2018:

You are most welcome, Robert. Glad you liked it.

Robert Sacchi on December 01, 2018:

Thank you for posting this recipe.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on December 01, 2018:

Hi Robert,

So happy to know that you made and like this pumpkin walnut bread recipe.

Robert Sacchi on November 30, 2018:

I made it this evening. It is very good thank you.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 28, 2018:

Hi Robert,

Happy to be of assistance. Hope they enjoy this recipe.

Robert Sacchi on November 27, 2018:

Thanks for the tip. I love cinnamon but my niece and nephew don't so I want to see if I can sub out.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 27, 2018:

Hi Robert,

If you don't like the flavor of cinnamon you could just skip it. It would still be flavorful with the ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. Since it called for 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon you could just increase the amounts of the other spices a bit to compensate for the lack of cinnamon. Hope this helps!

Robert Sacchi on November 27, 2018:

Do you know if there is a reasonable substitute for cinnamon?

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 26, 2018:

You are most welcome Robert. Hope you enjoy it.

Robert Sacchi on November 25, 2018:

Thanks for the tip.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 25, 2018:

Hi Robert,

This pumpkin bread is so easy to make and it is delicious. Hope you give it a try. If you have fresh pureed pumpkin it can be substituted for the canned.

Robert Sacchi on November 24, 2018:

This seems an interesting recipe. Maybe I'll get the get up and go for this season and try it out.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 01, 2018:

Hi Chitrangada,

If you like the flavor of pumpkin I am sure that you will enjoy eating this pumpkin walnut bread. Enjoy!

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on November 01, 2018:

This Sounds delicious and I would love to try this.

Pumpkin is indeed very nutritious and should be consumed frequently. I haven’t tried it in baking recipes. Glad to have found this recipe.

Thanks for sharing the detailed instructions and helpful pictures.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on October 20, 2018:

Hi Patricia,

This is a perfect bread to be making this time of year. Pumpkin bread also makes for a nice gift item.

As to rain in our area, we have had our fair share of it but thankfully no flooding issues in our part of the state. So many people have once again lost homes, cars, etc. I am glad that your sister lives on high ground.

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on October 19, 2018:

It is the time of year when i love to bake....I have to make this again-'' it is sooo good. Angels headed to you...I hope its not flooding there...my sister in Ausyin says flooding is threatened...thankfully she is up on a high hill..ps

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on October 18, 2018:

Hi Kyriaki,

The ingredients are easy to get and this is a really tasty sweet bread. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Kyriaki Chatzi on October 18, 2018:

D-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!!! And the ingredients are not out-of-this-world. I'll definitely try your recipe this weekend. :)

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on January 09, 2015:

Hi Lillly Rose1,

I love it also and it is definitely good year round. Glad you liked the recipe.

Linda from Texas on January 09, 2015:

I love pumpkin bread, nice recipe.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 07, 2014:

Hi Sunshine625,

If you can bake from a box, with just a few more measurements and ingredients you could make this pumpkin bread from scratch. It is easy and so good. Hope you give it a try! :)

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 07, 2014:

Hello colorfulone,

This really is easy to make if one has a can of pumpkin on hand and the bread is moist and delicious. Enjoy! Thanks for the share.

Linda Bilyeu from Orlando, FL on November 01, 2014:

I voted as the person who visits the bakery to purchase baked goods...or I bake from a box, rarely from scratch, but your pumpkin bread looks delicious! :)

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 01, 2014:

Hi Stephanie,

We have 4 large pumpkins that we are using currently for outdoor decor by our front door but I am ready to start doing some cooking with them. I have always used the canned pumpkin for this bread recipe. Mostly I roast the fresh pumpkins or use them in soups. Enjoy this pumpkin bread recipe!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on October 31, 2014:

Hi Rebecca,

Glad you found this recipe in time for the upcoming holiday season. You are most welcome!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on October 30, 2014:

Hi Mary,

Enjoy this delicious pumpkin bread recipe. There are loads of pumpkin patches in Houston also.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on October 29, 2014:

Hi Au fait,

You are correct in that this is the time of year people start thinking about using more pumpkin in their recipes. Thanks for sharing it with others. :)

Susie Lehto from Minnesota on October 28, 2014:

This sounds like a flavorful recipe for a moist pumpkin bread treat, and fast and easy, too. I am wishes I had a can on pumpkin on hand.

Sharing to my recipe board and and voting up, Peg.

Stephanie Henkel from USA on October 28, 2014:

Halloweeen is the perfect time to be thinking of pumpkin bread, and your recipe for pumpkin walnut bread looks delicious and perfect for the season. I haven't been baking much lately, but the cooler weather and the thought of the wonderful smell of spices and pumpkin filling the house has inspired me!

Rebecca Mealey from Northeastern Georgia, USA on October 28, 2014:

Just the recipe for the season that i've been looking for. Thanks!

Mary Hyatt from Florida on October 28, 2014:

Just came back to read this great recipe for your Pumpkin bread and to share it in time for Thanksgiving! We have a neighborhood pumpkin patch already.

C E Clark from North Texas on October 27, 2014:

With the holidays coming up, this would make a great addition to any menu or party tray. Pinned to Awesome Hubpages and sharing again on HP. With all of our new writers, I'm sure some of them haven't seen this delicious recipe yet!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on February 11, 2014:

Hello Ilona1,

The nuts do add some crunch and good flavor to this pumpkin bread recipe. Enjoy! Appreciate your comment.

Ilona from Ohio on February 04, 2014:

I love the addition of nuts to pumpkin bread- looks like this recipe made it to my favorites list!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on December 04, 2013:

Hi Anamika S,

This is such an easy recipe to whip up even without a bread making machine. Enjoy!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 29, 2013:

Hi mary615,

I made some and have already given out some loaves of this delicious pumpkin walnut bread. It is good year round but somehow pumpkin seems so appropriate at this time of year. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 27, 2013:

Hi Au fait,

We gave a loaf of this pumpkin bread to our yardman today who mows and edges our yard along with his check. He seemed pleased. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Anamika S Jain from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India on November 23, 2013:

That looks so yummy that I want to try it out too. My Bread making machine is lying idle for many months now... I may as well make use of it.

Mary Hyatt from Florida on November 23, 2013:

Time to get cooking again for the holidays!! I bookmarked this recipe, because I'll surely make this.

Voted UP and shared all round.

C E Clark from North Texas on November 23, 2013:

Sharing this again because Thanksgiving is just a few days away and this bread is so yummy it would be a fabulous addition to anyone's Thanksgiving menu -- or any occasion. Voted up again too. Also, pinned to 'Awesome Hubpages.'

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 18, 2013:

Hi vespawoolf,

So glad that you tried my pumpkin bread recipe and like it. Thanks for letting me know. I think that I will have to make some soon.

Vespa Woolf from Peru, South America on November 18, 2013:

I gave you five stars for your fabulous pumpkin bread recipe! It was on my list of favorites so we whipped up two loaves yesterday. This bread is just as delicious as it looks in the photos. Thanks so much!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 08, 2013:

Hi ElleBee,

Enjoy it! :))

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on November 07, 2013:

Hi Au fait,

This is a great time of year to be baking pumpkin breads. Thanks for pinning to the different boards and sharing again since people are starting to prepare for the end of the year holidays. :)

ElleBee on October 26, 2013:

Ooh yummy! I love pumpkin bread, may need to try this out - after all one pumpkin bread recipe is simply never enough!

C E Clark from North Texas on October 26, 2013:

Already pinned this to my 'Breads & Pastries' board, but pinned it again, this time to my 'Halloween, Thanksgiving, & Autumn' board. Also voted it up and will share it again with followers since this is a fabulous recipe and it's the time of year that many people enjoy pumpkin in a lot of different recipes. I'm with you, though. I think it's delicious year around!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on August 15, 2013:

Hi toptendeals

I notice that you are gravitating towards these recipes like this. You must have a sweet tooth? Ha! Thanks for your comment.

Jason Benedict from Boca Raton, Florida on August 13, 2013:

I love pumpkin bread, this looks so good! Voted up.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on July 15, 2013:

Hi Rajan,

Thanks for the link back and happy that you like the sound of this recipe. Appreciate the pin and share also. :)

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on July 15, 2013:

Peggy, wonderful recipe for a healthy bread. I'm including a link to this hub in my hub on the health benefits of pumpkin. Thanks for sharing.

Voted up, useful and interesting. Shared and pinned as well.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on July 10, 2013:

Hi Jaye,

I also read Rajan's hub. I guess we should be incorporating more pumpkin into our diets for all of the health benefits. Thanks for the votes and comment on the dog photos. :)

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on July 10, 2013:

Hi Zubair Ahmed,

If you like walnut bread and also pumpkin flavors, you should like this bread. Hope you let me know how you like it when you give it a try. Thanks!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on July 10, 2013:

Hi Au fait,

Have you tried making this pumpkin bread? You will like it even more when you get to taste it if you have not yet tried making the recipe. Thanks for the pin and share. :)

Jaye Denman from Deep South, USA on July 08, 2013:

Pumpkin walnut bread is one of the few things I attempt to bake. The other is banana walnut bread. I just read Rajan's hub about the many health benefits of pumpkin and pumpkin seeds, so I'll probably make more of the pumpkin bread than the banana in future. The spices make it SO good!

Voted Up++

Jaye

P.S. The dogs are adorable!

Zubair Ahmed on July 08, 2013:

I never thought about baking pumpkin bread, my usually usage of pumpkin is in curries, thank you for this idea i'd have to try it. Hopefully it will taste good. I've tried walnut bead before which goes down a treat. Pumpkin bread now that'd be something to share with the neighbours.

C E Clark from North Texas on July 08, 2013:

This is a great recipe and I've come back to pin it to my 'Bread & Pastries' board. Will share again, too.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on July 04, 2013:

Hi Suzanne,

It will be nice to have your own ready supply of pumpkins at your disposal for you to eat and also help feed those goats. Thanks for your votes and the share. Happy 4th of July!

justmesuzanne from Texas on June 30, 2013:

Believe it or not, I have a single pumpkin ready to harvest right now, so I will make use of this recipe very shortly! To answer your question, no Ray does not eat pumpkins! I thought he would, but he is not interested in pumpkins or any other squash. We will be getting some goats to keep him company within the next week or so. I know they will eat pumpkins! :D

Voted up, useful and shared!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on May 17, 2013:

Hi Tony,

So glad that you liked the sound of this pumpkin bread recipe. You say that pumpkin is not that popular except for carving in your part of the world. Interesting. Over here it is associated with pumpkin pies at Thanksgiving but is sold year round in canned form. I have used it in soups successfully. Thanks for your comment, up vote and the 5 star rating.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on May 17, 2013:

Hi Suzanne,

From the sound of it, you will be able to provide the Methodist church all the pumpkins they need this coming Fall season for their annual fundraiser. :)) Does your donkey eat any pumpkin? I believe they would eat carrots, so just wondering if you have tried feeding it any raw pumpkin?

You should take some pictures of your pumpkin patch this Fall and write a hub about it. Glad that you liked this pumpkin bread recipe. You will surely have an abundance of one of the main ingredients when they all mature. Appreciate your comment and votes.

Tony Mead from Yorkshire on May 17, 2013:

Peggy

this recipe sounds delicious, I've not used pumpkin much it has only just started being popular over here, and then only for carving.

Love all your pictures I'm glad someone else goes to all the trouble that I do for their hubs.

voted up and 5stars

regards

Tony

justmesuzanne from Texas on May 16, 2013:

I will clip this and store it away! My back yard is going to look like your pumpkin patch photo come fall! Last year the Methodist church gave me and my donkey a dozen bales of straw, a round bale of hay and 25 organic pumpkins all left over from their pumpkin patch event! I just tucked the pumpkins all around the yard and covered them with compost. Now I have pumpkin plants sprouting everywhere! LOL! :D Voted up and useful!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on May 06, 2013:

Hi MJennifer,

So very happy to hear that you are enjoying this pumpkin bread recipe. Thanks for the note about the water. I added that to the wet ingredients and made a note of it in the instructions. It was an oversight. Thanks for catching it! Whole wheat flour would make it even healthier to eat and your extra spices even more yummy I am sure. Will do that the next time I bake this sweet bread. Really appreciate your return comment. :))

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on May 06, 2013:

Hi moonlake,

Pumpkin bread is delicious. Hope that you like this recipe. Thanks for the pin.

Marcy J. Miller from Arizona on May 04, 2013:

Just wanted to check back in to tell you that as I type this, I am eating a warm, butter-slathered slice of your pumpkin walnut bread. I subbed whole wheat flour and added cardamom and allspice, and it is absolutely divine. Even my picky-eater husband has already announced he will have it for breakfast. I'm going to wear this recipe out!

I did notice 2/3 cup of water in your ingredient list but didn't see it in the directions (maybe I missed it?) so I added it to the egg/pumpkin mix prior to adding the dry ingredients. I only point it out in case you want to clarify it so no one forgets to add the water at some point -- after all, with such a great recipe it'd be a darned shame if someone didn't have it turn out just as it should!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on May 04, 2013:

Hi pinto2011,

Am sure if you follow this recipe yours will look just the same. Enjoy! and thanks for your comment.

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on May 04, 2013:

Hi MJennifer,

Will have to see if our little Skippy likes pumpkin. He probably would since he likes carrots and other veggies. Hopefully by now you have acquired some eggs. Your adding cardamom and nutmeg to this bread recipe would be delicious. Think that I'll add those ingredients the next time I make more pumpkin walnut bread. Thanks for the idea as well as your comment. :)

moonlake from America on May 03, 2013:

Love pumpkin bread have to add this recipe to my pin board.

Hello carter06,

Nice that you have an abundant supply of fresh pumpkins on hand for your use in recipes like this. Glad that you enjoyed the Shih Tzu photos. :)) Thanks for the votes + share.

Marcy J. Miller from Arizona on May 02, 2013:

I've been trying to find ways to add more pumpkin to my diet (I already feed it to my dogs on a semi-regular basis) and can't wait to try this recipe! If only I had enough eggs on hand, I'd be making a loaf tonight -- it looks irresistible! (Of course, I'll be adding my "secret ingredients" -- cardamom and nutmeg -- I like extra spicy!)

Mary from From the land of Chocolate Chips,and all other things sweet. on May 02, 2013:

Suzanne Ridgeway from Dublin, Ireland on May 02, 2013:

Hi Peggy,

This looks delicious! I love Pumpkin but have not eaten many here but first got introduced to it living in New Zealand and soon became addicted to it! Walnuts are one of my favorite nuts and love bread with them so this is an all round winner for me. Your photos and instructions as always are great to follow making it all seem so doable and easy. Lovely that it is an old family recipe too! Voted up, Interesting, Useful, Shared and Pinned!

Hi North Wind,

Yes...the Shih Tzu dog photos are so cute. I love adding them to appropriate titled hubs. I am continually amazed at how Judi gets them to all pose like that. Enjoy your pumpkin walnut bread recipe in good health and thanks for your comment.

North Wind from The World (for now) on March 02, 2013:

Those dogs cracked me up. They look so cute!

Thanks for telling me about this hub. I will most definitely use this recipe soon because the pumpkin is a - waiting!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on February 28, 2013:

Hi vespawoolf,

You seem very familiar with pumpkin bread and also the use of light olive oil in baking. This is a very moist bread...and so yummy! These Shih Tzu photos make me smile. Thanks for your comment.

Vespa Woolf from Peru, South America on February 28, 2013:

Another sweet bread using light olive oil and more fun shitzu photos, too! Pumpkin bread is one of my favories--it's even better than banana bread--and using oil instead of butter makes for moister bread. Love it!

Peggy Woods (author) from Houston, Texas on February 25, 2013:

Hi teaches12345,

So glad to know that you liked the sound of this pumpkin walnut bread recipe and also learned a bit about the nutrition factor. Thanks for your comment.

Hi Aurelio,

Am sure that enjoying a slice of this pumpkin walnut bread with some hot apple cider or cinnamon tea would be delicious. Hope you give it a try sometime and report back. Thanks for your comment and votes.

Dianna Mendez on February 24, 2013:

Peggy, your opening photo made my mouth water! I love pumpkin recipes and this one is a good one. Thanks for the background on nutrition and the recipe idea.

Aurelio Locsin from Orange County, CA on February 24, 2013:

Now here's a combination I've never tried, although I do like both pumpkins and walnuts. I'm wondering what it would be like to have this with hot apple cider or some cinnamon tea. Voting this Up and Useful.
