Moist Pumpkin Bread Recipe

🔑 Key to Success #1 – Use Pumpkin Puree, Not Pumpkin Pie Filling

In the world of pumpkin pie bread, there is one critical ingredient that sets the stage for mouthwatering flavors and the ultimate fall treat: pumpkin puree. 

While it may be tempting to reach for a can of pumpkin pie filling, using pumpkin puree is the key to achieving the perfect texture, taste, and overall success of your pumpkin bread.

Pumpkin puree is different from pumpkin pie filling in that it contains solely pumpkin flesh that has been cooked and strained, without any added sugars or spices. 

This pure and unadulterated form of pumpkin provides a blank canvas to enhance the pumpkin flavor in this easy quick bread recipe.

By using pumpkin puree, you have complete control over the sweetness and spiciness of your pumpkin pie bread. 

You can add just the right amount of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to perfectly balance the flavors and create a harmonious blend that truly epitomizes the essence of fall.

Not only does using pumpkin puree give you more control over the taste of your bread, but it also ensures a moist and tender texture. 

Pumpkin puree adds natural moisture to the batter, resulting in a bread that is soft, rich, and incredibly satisfying.

Mix one can of pumpkin with three cups of sugar, then add the room temperature eggs and blend well.

🔑 Key to Success #2 – Spice Things Up With Pumpkin Pie Spice

Composed of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves, pumpkin pie spice perfectly encapsulates the flavors of autumn. 

Just a couple of teaspoons of this fragrant blend can transform an ordinary pumpkin bread recipe into a mouthwatering masterpiece that will have your taste buds dancing with delight.

The cinnamon adds a comforting sweetness, while the nutmeg brings a hint of earthiness. 

Ginger adds a subtle warmth, allspice contributes a touch of complexity, and cloves provide a rich, deep flavor.

The aromatic notes of pumpkin pie spice not only tantalize your taste buds but also fill your kitchen with an irresistible fragrance that will have friends and family flocking to your doorstep.

In addition to pumpkin pie spice, we’re also adding more cinnamon and a little salt to perfectly balance the fall flavors. 

To round out the dry ingredients, combine all-purpose flour with baking soda as the leavening agent to ensure that you end up with a tender loaf of bread. 

​For best results, check the expiration date on your baking soda to make sure it is still good.

🔑 Key to Success #3 – Coconut Oil for Extra Moist Pumpkin Bread

With its ability to infuse the bread with extra moisture and a subtle nutty flavor, coconut oil is a game-changer in this tender pumpkin bread recipe. 

The addition of coconut oil to the recipe not only enhances the overall taste and moist texture but also ensures that each bite is incredibly moist and delectable.

Coconut oil, derived from the meat of mature coconuts, has gained popularity in recent years due to its numerous health benefits and versatility in cooking. 

In baking, it serves as a fantastic alternative to traditional vegetable oil or butter, adding a unique richness and a touch of tropical flair. 

When used in this pumpkin pie bread recipe, coconut oil works its magic by seamlessly blending with the other ingredients, resulting in a wonderfully moist and tender loaf of pumpkin bread.

Unlike other fats, coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty acids, which are easily absorbed by the body and quickly metabolized into energy. 

This means that the oil melts at a lower temperature, helping to keep the bread incredibly moist without weighing it down. 

As a result, each slice of pumpkin pie bread infused with coconut oil is moist, light, and simply irresistible.

So, grab yourself a couple of thick slices, smear some butter on the top, and enjoy the fall flavor!

🍞 Storing Pumpkin Bread

When it comes to storing and freezing pumpkin bread, it is essential to preserve its texture and taste. 

For long-term storage, wrap individual slices tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, ensuring that all sides are covered. 

Then, place the wrapped slices in an airtight container or freezer bag. 

When you want to enjoy a slice, heat it in the microwave for 10–15 seconds or thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. 

This method will help maintain the pumpkin bread’s moisture and keep it fresh for weeks to come.
