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 bread and my pumpkin banana bread are both favorites around here. 

This moist and delicious pumpkin bread is top of my list of regular recipes that we will make every year!

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!

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 at 350 degrees for 55 – 65 minutes.

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. 

What goes good on pumpkin bread?

The best way to serve this bread is warmed up with a smear of butter on top.

Trust me on this!

Once you try it you’ll never go back. 

Or if you’re feeling fancy, some cinnamon honey butter…yum!
