Savory Sweet Breads

While all of the many decorative pumpkins that once graced just about every garden nursery as well as 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 & Fiber" and is also "Low in Calories & Fat."

Some of the ingredients for making pumpkin bread.

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 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,

        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!

        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.

        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.

        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.

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!

        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. :))

        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!

        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. :)

        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.

        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!)

        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 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.

        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!

        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.

        Hi Alastar,

        I agree with you in that most often I also like fresh ingredients as opposed to canned. Pumpkin is one exception to the rule. Thanks for your comment and hope that "your cook" likes this recipe. :))

        Hello JRGray,

        No reason to only think of enjoying pumpkin bread just during the holidays. It is a year round treat and easy enough to make. I have never eaten the Starbucks version but am sure it is probably very good since from what you say you are now missing it. Thanks for your comment.
