Easy and Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread

This easy pumpkin bread is delicious and moist, with flavors from nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger—used canned or homemade pumpkin.

Fall is upon us, the weather is beautiful, and it means pumpkin time for many people. For my family, it is an entirely different story. Every year I try to make a dish with pumpkin to at least be “a la mode,” but it is always the same excuse.

Pumpkin has a blend taste; pumpkin is this, pumpkin is that… blah, blah, blah! I stopped listening for a long time and would leave the pumpkin dish on the table. Same thing I did with my Delicious Pumpkin Bread recipe I made with dried cranberries. And guess what happened? They ate it, of course.

I have learned that pumpkin needs the right amount of spices and the right balance to be tasteful. Cinnamon and ginger usually do the trick. Nutmeg, if not finely ground, will give pumpkin pie, for example, grainy texture. Mixing different extracts may not be the right idea either. Mixing dried fruits may and may not work; it all depends on the fruit.

I have tried the same recipe with different raisins and apricots and have had different results. I am not sure if the mixture of a homemade vanilla extract made with pure vodka and the addition of the dried cranberries is the success of this delicious bread, but for now, this is my favorite. Oh! And why is this called bread when it has alcohol (vanilla extract)? These days everything tastes good with a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

  1. We are trying the recipe and it says to beat eggs but the ingredients don’t have eggs so we aren’t sure how many to use. We are going with two :\

    1. Thank you, Chelle, for letting us know. You can use 2 large eggs, and the recipe has been updated. Thank you for trying our recipe. 🙂

    1. Thanks for your comment. The cranberries does make a difference considering that pumpkin is a bit blend. Feel free to try it and let me know what you think. 🙂
