The Great 🎃 Bread

Call pumpkin spice basic all you want, you won't be able to resist this 🎃🍞


  • 4 tbsp of unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 3/4 cups of all purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp of salt

  • 1 tsp of baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp of freshly grated nutmeg (or not freshly grated bc #lazy)

  • 1/4 tsp of allspice

  • 1/4 tsp of ground cloves

  • 1/4 tsp of ground ginger (TBH this is a lot of spices, if you want to cheat and go for 3 tbsp of pre-mixed pumpkin pie spice instead, I won't tell)

  • Splash of vanilla

  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar

  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil

  • 1 cup of canned pumpkin puree

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2/3 cup of water


  1. Preheat your oven to 350℉ and butter a 9-inch loaf pan.

  2. Whisk together dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and allllll the spices) in a bowl.

  3. In a separate, larger bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, and oil on high speed until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and pumpkin puree and mix until combined.

  4. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix until incorporated.

  5. Mixing on low speed, slowly add dry ingredients and water, and mix until combined.

  6. Spread batter into the buttered pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, at least 1 hour.

  7. Let cool completely before enjoying! 👻
