  • Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the liquid ingredients. Let this process take about 1 to 2 minutes so the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
  • Using a spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the wet and slowly fold until the ingredients are blended.
    batter and flour
  • Prepare a 10 x 5 loaf pan by buttering it really well and then adding a strip of parchment paper to the bottom and up the sides for easy removal.

  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour. The bread will be fully risen in the center, like a loaf. Make sure it’s fully cooked and brown on the top otherwise it will fall in the middle once removed from the oven.

  • Measure all of the ingredients before. Liquid in one measuring cup, dry in a mixing bowl.
  • Always use high quality ingredients when baking. Whole, organic eggs, full fat butter, pure vanilla extract. This all makes a difference in the quality of the pumpkin bread.
  • When adding the oil, butter and vanilla, add it very slowly with the mixer running to incorporate air into the mixture.
  • Remember that true oven temperature and the material of the loaf pan you’re using will influence the baking time.
  • If adding in chocolate chips or nuts, fold them in when folding in the dry ingredients.
