Pumpkin Bread

  • 1 15 oz can of pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 cup granulated sugar
  • cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • tsp salt
  • tsp ground cinnamon
  • tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¾ tsp ground cloves
  • ¾ tsp ground ginger

Cinnamon Sugar Layer

  • cup sugar
  • tsp ground cinnamon
  • cup chopped nuts chop finely

Sugar Icing

  • cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare two loaf pans (9" x 5" x 2 3/4"). Coat each with Crisco and then dust lightly with flour till the inside surface is all covered.

    Cinnamon and Sugar Swirl

    • In a small bowl add sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts and mix.


    • In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water, and sugar until well blended.
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.
    • Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Pour half the dough into the prepared pans. Next, sprinkle a layer of the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the dough. Then top with the rest of the pumpkin mixture.
    • Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven. Loaves are done when a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Depending on what size loaf pan you use, it could take longer to bake.
    • Once the bread is baked, place on a cooling rack. Run a butter knife along the edges to loosen the loaf. Once cool, take loaves out of the pan.
    • When cool, spread icing on top.
