Description

This Pumpkin Bread is truly the best! It’s simple to make, moist & tender, and has the perfect amount of spices. It’s going to quickly become one of your favorites.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 can (15 oz) pure pumpkin
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 pkgs. (3 oz each) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (I always use freshly grated)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray two 8.5 x 4.5 x 2.5-inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, oil, vanilla and pumpkin, mix until smooth.
  3. Add flour, sugar, dry pudding mix, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt. Mix until just combined.
  4. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans. Bake at 325° for 50 to 60 minutes* or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (*Every oven is different, so you may have to bake these even longer.)
  5. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

Notes

This can also be made in 5 small loaf pans  (5-3/4 x 3 x 2-inch). Perfect size for gift giving as well.
