Recipe notes and tips

  • Use a preheated oven.
  • Make sure to buy pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie mix. Pumpkin pie mix has lots of additives we don’t want or need in this recipe.
  •  Use room temperature ingredients. This prevents the batter from breaking or forming small clumps and helps everything become evenly incorporated.
  • I used pumpkin spice but you can up the spice levels with more nutmeg or cinnamon, for example. You don’t need to overdo it though for the spices to come through!
  • Prep your loaf pan with parchment paper, so the loaf comes out clean and less mess to clean up!
  • Use a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf, when it comes out clean the loaf is ready!
  • Serve with a pat of butter for simple deliciousness!
