How to Make Pumpkin Bread


Preheat the oven to 325 °F and set an oven rack in the middle position. Line with parchment paper or grease (two) 8 x 4-inch loaf pans with butter and dust with flour; alternatively, use a baking spray with flour in it. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, ground cinnamon, cloves, mace, ground ginger, and nutmeg. Set aside.

In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat the avocado oil, molasses, and sugars on medium speed until blended. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the pumpkin until well combined.

Add the flour mixture and mix at low speed until just combined. Turn the batter into the prepared pans, dividing evenly, and bake for 65 – 75 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for a few minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before serving.


This pumpkin bread can be frozen, double wrapped in clingfilm for up to 3 months. Defrost, covered, at room temperature for 3 hours.
