Gramma Approved: Pumpkin spice bread

My Gramma likes to say she is grazer so when you can find something that she wolfs down, that recipe is a keeper.  With fall upon us, it is pumpkin season.  Cans of pumpkin puree are stocking the shelves in our local grocery stores.  Our pantry will continue to be stocked with pumpkin, and I will try many recipes this fall to illustrates its versatility.  This pumpkin spice bread was our first use of the season, and Gramma inhaled her piece with her Dunkin Donuts coffee.

Pumpkin Spice Bread (You can find the recipe here:


  • 2 cups of white sugar
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 eggs + 2 egg whites, slightly beaten
  • 1 16oz can of pumpkin puree (be sure that you do not grab pumpkin pie filling)
  • 3 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon clove
  • 1 teaspoon all spice
  • 1/2 cup water

Preheat the oven to 350F and prepare baking dishes or loaf pans by spraying with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine flour and spices, mix to combine.

In a large bowl, combine eggs and sugars.  Slowly add in the flour mixture, alternating adding water.  

Pour into prepared dishes.  Bake for about an hour.


We froze several pieces of the bread and it thaws out great in the fridge overnight.
