It’s no secret that I love cake mix recipes

When I made cake mix pumpkin muffins were so good that I just knew I wanted to try making bread from cake mix too.

This recipe is my latest baking favorite using yellow cake mix!

Using cake mix is a fun and easy way to make fresh baked delicious treats in a fraction of the time, while still tasting homemade. 

I have been hooked ever since the first time I made cake mix cookie bars.

Honestly, this might be one of my favorite fall recipes so far.

I love how rich the flavor was and the bread is the perfect soft texture, just like my cake mix banana bread.

So simple, and we loved having it for a quick little breakfast, an afternoon snack with coffee, or even as dessert.

Do I have to use olive oil?

No, you can either use olive oil or vegetable oil.

I like baking with olive oil, but it is totally optional.

How to customize this recipe

Throw in some chocolate chips, nuts, or make a sweet maple pumpkin drizzle for the top.

The options are endless!

This pumpkin bread is so easy to customize.

Wow, this pumpkin bread is so good for fall. I adore its warm orange color. It would be awesome to have this for breakfast or as an afternoon snack. I’m planning to make it for my grandma who’s coming to visit us in two days. Gonna follow your recipe precisely. I’m sure the info you provide will help me a lot. Grandma’s obsessed with pumpkin. Hope she’ll fall in love with this super fluffy and rich bread. Can’t wait to present it to her and get her review. Btw, Joy do you have any tips for preventing a dry cake? Thank you for this great idea! p.s. now I’m also thinking of bringing it along to party tables next week.
