Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Bread

When I went to the Farmer’s Market in mid to late August I was still hoping to score some zucchini and squash and maybe even some blackberries. Mason loves blackberries and it had been a while since he had some and we’ve been out of zucchini and squash two of my favorite veggies and I was seriously craving it. When I got to the Farmer’s Market there was pretty much nothing. No zucchini, no squash, no blackberries, nothing I really wanted, except for the most amazing watermelon I’ve had in forever and then it happened.

I have been trying to so hard to avoid Fall. But there it was staring me in the face. A Pie Pumpkin.

And against my better judgement I picked one up.

I can tell you right now that I don’t regret it one bit. I ended up making a Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Bread and muffins for good measure and oh my. They were delicious and moist and a huge hit with the family!

This recipe will either make 2 loaves of bread or one loaf of bread an approximately 2 dozen muffins.

Start by lightly beat 4 eggs

Then combine the eggs, 1 cup vegetable oil, 2 tablespoons vanilla extract and 16 ounces of solid packed pumpkin. I used my homemade pumpkin puree it gives it more flavor 🙂

Then mix together the dry ingredients,  2 1/2  cups whole wheat flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves, 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice, 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture a little at time until everything is incorporated.

Grease two bread pans or one bread pan and 2 12 cup muffin pans.

Bake  BREAD at 350 degrees F for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Bake MUFFINS at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack; cool completely.

 This is the most moist bread I have ever had, delicious! ENJOY!
