Pumpkin Spice Bread

We’ve been having some beautiful autumn weather here in the midwest! One of the perks of this semi-chilly weather is opening my windows and airing out the house. So, I thought I would fill my home, and some of the outside, with the smells of fall and you can’t do that without making something with cinnamon, cloves, and pumpkin!

This was a pinterest inspired recipe so the only credit I can take is following the directions and baking it, but I can assure you it taste amazing! I find a lot of inspiration through pinterest, but I usually go off the beaten path and do my own thing, whether it be a recipe or DIY project. Most of the time it’s a home run but there has been a couple of times where I should have just stuck to the directions, but that’s what makes it fun and your own!


  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree (the puree, NOT pumpkin pie filling!) *I used Pumpkin pie filling and it turned out fine!
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 & ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 & ½ cups all-purpose flour
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 9″ loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl combine all of the above bread ingredients and beat at medium speed with a handheld mixer, scraping down the sides of the bowl, until well-mixed.
  3. Pour the bread mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for approx. 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out mostly clean or with a couple moist crumbs (not wet). Cool for about 15 minutes, then very gently remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

The recipe calls for a brown butter maple glaze but I decided to leave that out and instead dust it with powdered sugar. It turned out perfectly!

Here’s the link to the original recipe.


Enjoy! xoxo

  1. Sounds delicious Brittany!! all those spices swirled in with the pumpkin– It has to smell wonderful baking! I find lots to bake on Pinterest too–and sometimes go “off the beaten path” and you’re right–sometimes it works great and sometimes I realize I should have stuck with what was written! Love this time of year for baking-all pumpkin and apples… Hope you’re having a lovely weekend! xox
