Getting Ready to Bake

Once you have all your actual ingredients gathered, it’s time to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. While the oven is heating, lay a sheet of parchment paper in your prepared loaf pans (I prefer using 4-inch loaf pans for an even baking time) to avoid any sticking. You can also use a muffin pan if you fancy some mini loaves of this delicious recipe.

Let’s Start Mixing!

Step 1: In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients – the flour mixture with warm spices including cinnamon and a little bit of nutmeg.

Step 2: Create a well in the middle of the bread mixture. This is where the wet ingredients will go.

Step 3: In the well, combine pumpkin mixture which includes the pumpkin puree, large eggs, and oil. Mix it all up until you have a cohesive batter.

Batter and Mixture

Step 4: Distribute the batter evenly among the prepared loaf pans, giving a perfect way for the bread rise evenly.

Step 5: Time to bake! Pop them into the preheated oven and be ready to enjoy a moist texture that is absolutely divine.

Recipe Tips for the Perfect Libbys Pumpkin Bread

  1. Use Room Temperature Eggs: Using eggs at room temperature can result in a more cohesive batter. Cold eggs can cause the batter to seize or harden.
  2. Quality of Ingredients: For a delightful pumpkin flavor, ensure to use high-quality cinnamon and nutmeg. The quality of these warm spices can make a significant difference in the end result.
  3. Preventing Overmixing: When combining the wet and dry ingredients, mix just until they are incorporated. Overmixing can lead to a denser bread.
  4. Loaf Pan Preparation: Before pouring the batter into the loaf pans, make sure to line them with parchment paper or give them a good spray. This ensures easy removal of the bread after baking.
  5. Baking Time: Keep a close eye on the bread in the final stages of baking. Doing the toothpick test a few minutes before the estimated time can prevent overbaking.
  6. Cooling Time: Let the bread cool in the loaf pans on a wire rack for about 10-15 minutes before removing it. This makes it easier to slice and serves with a clean cut.
  7. Adding a Crispy Crust: If you prefer a crispy crust, you can brush the top of the bread with a little melted butter 10 minutes before the end of the baking time.
  8. Storage Tips: To maintain its moist texture, store the pumpkin bread wrapped in aluminum foil or in an airtight container. It will stay fresh for about 3-4 days.
  9. Serving Suggestions: Serve slices of pumpkin bread warm with a pat of butter or a scoop of ice cream for a comforting treat.
  10. Freezing the Bread: If you wish to freeze the bread, wrap individual slices or the whole loaf in aluminum foil, then place in a freezer bag, removing as much air as possible. It can be frozen for up to 3 months.
  11. Altitude Adjustments: If you are baking at a high altitude, you might need to adjust the baking time and possibly the amount of flour slightly for the best result.
  12. Experiment with Add-ins: Feel free to experiment with additional add-ins like chocolate chips or nuts for an extra layer of texture and flavor. Just be sure to toss them in a little bit of flour before adding to the batter to prevent them from sinking to the bottom.
