This old fashioned recipe for homemade pumpkin bread uses only wholesome ingredients. I recommend using freshly made pumpkin puree for the most nutrition and optimal flavor.
Today I baked a loaf of healthy pumpkin bread with the last cup of frozen organic pureed pumpkin that I had made earlier in the Fall. When I take the time to make pumpkin puree, I always use locally grown pumpkins and make a lot to last me all season.
My family loves this traditional pumpkin loaf that is so easy to make from scratch. It really shouldn’t be just Autumn fare, should it?
Now that I’ve used up the last of my puree from the freezer, I will just have to wait until pumpkins come back into season again!
That’s the essence of a Traditional Kitchen. Plan ahead, make a lot, and fully maximize not only the nutrition in your food with Traditional Cooking Methods but your enjoyment as well!
Easy Homemade Pumpkin Bread Recipe
Healthy pumpkin bread recipe with only whole ingredients and freshly pureed pumpkin for the most nutrition.
- 1 1/2 cups flour preferably freshly ground
- 1 cup pumpkin puree preferably organic
- 1/2 cup expeller-pressed coconut oil
- 2 eggs beaten, preferably pastured or free range
- 1/2-1 cup evaporated cane juice
- 5 drops liquid stevia optional
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3 Tbl filtered water use only if extra moisture needed for the batter
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp ground allspice
- 1 tsp ground Ceylon cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and then fold in the dry ingredients until smooth. Bake pumpkin bread at 350 F/177 C for about 1 hour or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool and serve. Homemade pumpkin bread is best enjoyed with a nice thick slab of grass-fed butter on top.
If you will use up the loaf within two days, you can keep at room temperature covered on the counter. Otherwise, refrigerate. This bread freezes well too!
