This is by far the best pumpkin bread recipe I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. It was passed to me by my aunt who said it was her great-grandmother's recipe. I also use this recipe for my Pumpkin Cookies, only I alter it some. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. :)

Yummy! This is a simple, old fashioned, no frills pumpkin bread. The smell of this pumpkin bread filled the Test Kitchen with the comforting smells of fall. This was moist, delicious and I loved the flavor the ground pecans gave this bread without giving it too much crunch. A delicious sugary crust forms on top.

NOTE: This recipe is enough to do two standard loaves of bread. I did one regular loaf and mini loaves with the other half. These would be great for bake sales or as a gift. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Old Fashioned Pumpkin Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Using a mixer, combine all wet ingredients and sugar, mixing only until they are well incorporated.
  • 2Now combine the remaining dry ingredients (except pecans) in a separate bowl.
  • 3Then using a measuring cup or large spoon, slowly add in scoops of dry ingredients mixing well between each addition, do not over mix batter.
  • 4Once dry ingredients are mixed in well, add in pecans being sure to mix them in evenly.
  • 5Grease and flour 2 bread pans.
  • 6Fill pans halfway with batter.
  • 7Bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 60 minutes.
  • 8**Note: This recipe originally calls for it to be baked in 3 (1 lb) coffee cans. But since they no longer make the metal coffee cans you can use the bread pans. If you do happen to find the coffee cans, then by all means use them. It gives the bread a really nice design.**
