Let me start by saying that I do not fancy myself a baker. I don’t bake often, but when Fall hits, I tend to bake more.
But then…two weeks ago our stove lost it’s mind and caught fire and I have been hoarding multiple cans of pumpkin puree for the exact moment that the new stove arrived. This easy pumpkin bread was the baking test run and the new oven did not do me wrong (I might mention that my previous stove in this home had an analog clock on it. It was that old.)
My two boys love to help bake, aka paint the kitchen with flour and eggs, so a few weeks ago when pumpkin season rolled in we baked this super easy pumpkin bread.
This Is The Best Pumpkin Thing You Will Eat All Season
This turned out o be the best pumpkin thing I think I have ever eaten. The boys agreed. Here’s the recipe for a delicious and easy pumpkin bread recipe- oh, and did I mention it has a brown sugar maple glaze? It does.
What’s better than warm pumpkin bread with a cinnamon glaze?
This warm pumpkin bread with a cinnamon glaze is insanely easy to make, even when your kids are helping and you are really not a regular baker- t (this is a description of me BTW, hi there.)
Now onto this recipe.
Easy Pumpkin Bread with Maple Cinamon Glaze
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 egg
- 1 cup oil
- 1 can ( 15 oz) pumpkin puree or 2 cups minus 2 1/2 tbsp
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp pumpkin spice powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1 tsp nutmeg powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- Preheat the oven to 350° F.

- In a mixing bowl, beat the sugar and egg until light and fluffy for a few minutes.
- Add oil, pumpkin puree, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin spice powder, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, and salt, mix it until it just combined.
- Add flour, mix it until well blended.
- Pour the batter into prepared loaf pans, bake it for 40 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. (my loaves came out perfect at 40 mins)
- Leave it cool in the pan for ten minutes before transfer it to a cooling rack.
I cup of confectioners sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp water, (stir and add more little bits at a time as needed to make a glaze consistency- I added probably 3-4)
This was hands down the BEST pumpkin bread I have ever had. The kids agreed. And it was the only thing they agreed on all day.
This recipe makes two loaves. Let me know if you make it and share some pics over on Facebook with me!
