Servings: 1 loaf


  • Loaf Pan


  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable or canola oil 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C).
  • In a large bowl: combine pumpkin puree, oil, sugar, vanilla extract and 1 egg; mix. Then add the other egg to the bowl and mix.
  • Place a strainer over the top of the bowl (a sifter will also work as a substitute).
  • Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon to the strainer/sifter and mix together. Then sift all dry ingredients onto the wet mixture (finer powder helps prevent lumps).
  • Mix the contents of the bowl until a smooth batter is formed.
  • Coat the loaf pan with a No-Stick Cooking Spray (PAM made with Flour works well).
  • Pour the batter in the well coated loaf pan and place in the oven.
  • Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick placed in the center of the bread comes out clean. 
  • Remove from the oven and rest the bread in the pan for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the bread from the loaf pan and transfer to a cake rack.
