Today I baked a loaf of healthy pumpkin bread with the last cup of pureed pumpkin that I had made back at Thanksgiving. When I take the time to make pureed pumpkin, I always use in season pumpkins and make a lot, frozen in small containers. This way, I have enough not only for pumpkin piepumpkin pudding, pumpkin soup and pumpkin cookies during the Fall, but also for baking pumpkin bread for several months afterward.

Homemade Pumpkin Bread

My family loves healthy pumpkin bread made from scratch at home. It really shouldn’t be just Autumn fare should it?

Now that I’ve used up the last of my pumpkin puree from the freezer, I will just have to wait until pumpkins come back into season again. Then, I will make enough again to last through the holidays.

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!

I hope you enjoy this recipe for healthy pumpkin bread.

  1. 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 350F/177 C for about 1 hour or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

  2. Cool and serve. Homemade pumpkin bread is best enjoyed with a nice thick slab of grassfed butter on top.

  3. 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!
