Just Another Great Pumpkin Bread

Yes, it's just another great pumpkin bread recipe so that's what I'm calling it. This recipe makes high rising, dense, non-crumbly loaves that freeze perfectly.

  • 3 1/3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour 420 grams
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups sugar 590 grams
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 15- ounce can pure pumpkin
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup miniature chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  • In a very large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, oil, pumpkin, water and eggs. Stir with a spoon or heavy duty scraper until well blended.
  • Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and stir until fully blended, then stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Divide the batter between the pans and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out with moist crumbs.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Carefully loosen from loaf pans and then turn onto a cooling rack. Allow the loaves to cool completely, then wrap in plastic wrap and freeze or refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • To store, wrap well in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least a week, or place wrapped loaves in a plastic freezer bag and freeze for several months.


Small loaves bake in about 40 minutes, so if you are baking 5x3 inch mini loaves, make sure to check them early.
