I’m going to get in sooooo much trouble for this!
It has been in our family for over 50 years! And it is absolutely DELICIOUS!
Seriously. I dream about this bread. Starbuck’s pumpkin bread can’t hold a CANDLE to this masterpiece!
Because it is SO MOIST!
That is the first thing that everybody says about it. I made this bread for two different groups of people this past weekend, and I heard that comment four different times!!! “It’s so moist!”
And that’s because the ingredients are….decadent!
But it’s got pumpkin in it, which is a vegetable, so it’s basically a salad, right?!
Anywho — make this for a housewarming gift, make it for new moms, if someone is sick, or if you want to be the hit of a party! Just make this bread!
So without further ado…I’m spilling the beans!
Here’s What You Need: (Makes 2 loaves)
3 cups sugar
1 cup “salad oil” (I used canola oil)
2 cups canned pumpkin
3 cups unsifted flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
Measuring cups & spoons
Large mixing bowl
Small mixing bowl
2 loaf pans
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Add salad oil to sugar and blend. Whip in eggs. Pumpkin is stirred into creamed mixture.
Then, sift dry ingredients together and blend in to complete batter.
Batter is poured into ungreased tube pan OR two loaf pans may be used.
Bake in 350 degree oven for about 1 hour and 10 minutes. (I like to bake it for 1 hour and 5 minutes so the middle is still slightly gooey. Trust me…it’s the best!)
Cool in pan then remove.
May be garnished with whipped cream (or ice cream) for dessert or warm and buttered as bread.
OK – listen. You need this bread in your life.
Even if we’re on the brink of spring, you need this bread. Today.
You will dream about it forever.
You know, being on the Specific Carb Diet, there are a lot of things that I can’t eat anymore, and THE QUESTION I get asked the most is, “What food do you miss the most?” And friends, THIS IS IT.
This was my favorite food growing up. My brothers and I used to flight over who gets to lick to bowl haha.
But I’m serious. It really is so tender and light. And the crumb on it is absolute perfection.
Make this for someone you love, because they will love you for it!!

I laughed at the ‘it’s a salad!’ comment. When people try to bring me down for loving chocolate I tell them, ‘It’s a bean ergo it is a vegetable!’. I am going to try this recipe. I love these sorts of breads. Thanks for the recipe!
hahah thanks Melissa! Right?? It’s a vegetable!! 🙂 heheh I hope you love it as much as we do! Hugs and love xox
The bread looks so delicious, yes please! I hope your mom doesn’t get mad at you, my sister and I used to fight over who licks the bowl and spoons! 😂❤️
Thank you so much John! hahah oh she was honored I wanted to share it! she’s got so many great recipes, I really should share more! Hugs and love xox
Looks both simple and delicious. When you said decadent I was afraid I would see chocolate or heavy cream but this looks like a wonderful real sweet pumpkin bread that is worth trying. Thanks!
Thank you Pete! Oh yes – it is both! The batter comes together in about 5-10 minutes, and then just the bake time! and it is SO AMAZING! Starbucks WISHES their pumpkin bread was this good! haha Hugs and love xox
Reminds me of my Granny’s persimmon pudding. Hard to come by persimmons, but I think you can actually use pumpkin too. Similar to your bread except it doesn’t rise. Completely decadent. 🙂 🤗🙏
Permisson pudding!! oh my gosh, I have NEVER had that, but I absolutely LOVE persimmons. I actually just had two! (And they’re really hard right now becuase they’re out of season, but I still love them anyway haha) Interesting! I may need to try it out! thanks Kenneth! Hugs and love xox
Problem with persimmons is if you get them too early, they’re very bitter, like alum. Will set your teeth on edge and pucker your lips. 😙 LOL. I’ll see about sending you the recipe. 😁
ah yes – but sooo worth the wait!!! 🙂

It looks like my mom’s pumpkin bread recipe. I missed it too, so I came up with a low carb version that hits the spot. I actually made some this week, despite the fact that it is spring. 🙂 I was missing it.
Thank you so much Linda! oooh! Nice work! I’ve made a similar recipe with almond flour, but nothing beats the original! hahah So glad you stopped by! Hugs and love xox

Family recipes are the best! Of course, a slice or two would constitute at least one of your five-a-day.
Hi Sheree! They really are the best! haha oh yes – at least ONE of the five! heheh Hugs and love xox
This is the exact same recipe our family has been making for at least 50 years. You’re right; it is the absolute best!
Hi Amy! Oh nice!! Isn’t it amazingly delicious!? I bet it was one of those passed around favorites! It’s a legend in our family! hope you’re having a great day! thanks for stopping by! Hugs and love xox
thank you so much Kenneth! Hugs and love xox
I also reblogged this onto my epilepsycerebralpalsy.com page as sometimes I do articles and receive articles on Anorexia. You should take a look when you get a chance.❤️
oh gosh thank you!! i will definitely check it out!
Hmm, looks “almost” as good as my various pumpkin bread recipes from Pumpkin Apricot Walnut Cake to Pumpkin Buttermilk Cake! As for licking the bowl, I remember my Mother graciously would leave some batter in the bowls or on the beaters for my brother and me as long as we were home. I noted after he went to college that the bowls and beaters were a lot emptier and the breads were just a little larger. Makes me miss my Mother, again.
hi CA! oh my gosh that pumpkin apricot cake sounds amazing! yum! haha thank you so much 🙂 aw, such precious memories. Hugs and love xox
Looks delicious, I love all things pumpkin. 👍
thank you so much John! me too! anything!! Hugs and love xox
Thank you Jo! It definitely is YUM-tastic! 🙂 heheh Hugs and love xox
Looks so good. I love bread.
