I am so happy to be sharing this Pumpkin Bread with all of you here at Smockity Frocks. Thank you Connie, for having me! :)

This is a quick bread, very light and does not have a heavy pumpkin flavor. It goes together rather quick and makes about 6 mini loaves. I like making the mini loaves, they bake quicker and are easy to freeze also.

  • 3 c. Sugar
  • 1 c. Oil
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 (16 oz) can solid pack pumpkin (be sure it’s not pie filling)
  • 3 c. Flour
  • 1 t. Ground Cloves
  • 1 t. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 t. Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 t. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 t. Salt
  • 1/2 t. Baking Powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat sugar and oil in large bowl. Mix in eggs and pumpkin. Sift dry ingredients in another bowl. Stir into pumpkin mixture in 2 additions. Fold in walnuts.
Divide batter into greased pans. Bake until toothpick comes out clean, about 40 – 45 minutes for mini loaves, and 1 hour 10 minutes for large pan.

  1. Yum, I love pumpkin bread and I have a Pampered chef mini loaf pan I can use. Thanks for the recipe!!

  2. Looks like a recipe that the nuts is going to make it awesome.

  3. Looks good! I can't wait to try it.

    I like mini loaves too. Easier to defrost, and we're not eating the same flavor loaf for days on end.

  5. Love this recipe and made it with a couple small adjustments – I used 2 eggs instead of 3, no nuts. Was super moist and delish! Getting ready to make it again! Thank you for sharing.
