Pumpkin Bread

So a few weeks ago i bribed the boyfriend by telling him that if he watched my dogs for the weekend that i would make him some pumpkin bread. So now it is time to deliver... looking for a recipe isn't hard since it seems like everyone has a recipe.

I however was on a mission to figure out if i could make pumpkin bread with Pumpkin Pie Mix instead of just canned pumpkin. A month ago i was so excited about the prospects of pumpkin hitting store shelves that i neglected to read the can and i ended up buying several cans of pumpkin pie mix. Now i don't intend to make 20 pumpkin pies so i set out in search of alternate recipes using this ingredient. After several tries, i think i found a recipe that works and uses he whole 30oz can of pie mix.

Pumpkin Bread

4 eggs
2/3 cup water
1 cup veggie oil
1 can pumpkin pie filling (30oz)
3 1/2 cup flour (i used whole wheat flour)
3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
sugar and pumpkin pie spice sprinkled on top

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Add oil, water, and pie filling and mix well
  • Mix dry ingredients together in separate bowl
  • Add to egg mixture and mix well together
  • Makes 2 (9-inch) loaves
  • Bake a 350 degrees for 1 hour or until knife comes out clean. After 30 minutes, sprinkle sugar and pie spice on top of loaf
  • Allow to cool
