Ahhhh, pumpkin bread. A fall staple every year.

As soon as September rolls around, I’m planning which pumpkin recipes to try, and which favorites to bake again.

This pumpkin bread and my pumpkin banana bread are both favorites around here. Right up there with Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The best way to serve it is warmed up with melted butter smeared generously on top. Heaven in every bite!

Pumpkin bread and apple crisp bars are fall must haves.

How to make pumpkin bread from scratch

Whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon together.

In another bowl, whisk the greek yogurt, maple syrup, olive oil, pumpkin, eggs, cane sugar, and vanilla. 

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet until combined. Grease a loaf pan and pour the batter in.

Bake the bread loaf at 350 degrees for 55 – 65 minutes. Allow to cool, then slice and serve warm with butter smeared on top!

It’s really so easy to throw together in 10 minutes or less.

Pumpkin Bread Tips

Be sure to allow the bread to cool before removing it from the pan. If you do not, it may stick to the pan, or worse, fall apart when removed. 

Simply remove the bread from the oven and set the pan on a cooling rack until cool to the touch. 

Once you are ready to get the bread out, run a knife around the edges to loosen it up before you flip it upside down.
