Fast, Easy Recipe For Spiced Pumpkin Bread

The Only Pumpkin Bread You'll Need This Fall

Elaborate, all-day baking projects like towering layer cakes and petit fours can certainly be fun to make, but nine times out of ten I'm drawn to simpler confections like this pumpkin loaf. No need to bust out your stand mixer; all you need is a whisk and a little elbow grease!

Dense, cakey, and assertively spiced with a heady combination of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg, this pumpkin bread straddles the line between indulgent breakfast and dessert. I'm partial to serving thick slices toasted and slathered with salted butter — because, well, pretty much everything is better with a smear of salted butter — but it's rich enough that it doesn't really need it.

Ingredients

  1. 3 cups (21 ounces) granulated sugar
  2. 1 cup vegetable oil
  3. 3 large eggs
  4. 1 15-ounce can solid pack pumpkin
  5. 3 cups (15 ounces) all-purpose flour
  6. 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  7. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  8. 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  9. 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  10. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  11. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  12. 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  13. 4 ounces (about 1 cup) chopped toasted pecans, walnuts, or a mix of the two, plus more for the top (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour 2 9-by-5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Whisk together sugar and oil in a large bowl until smooth. Mix in eggs and pumpkin.
  3. Sift flour, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into another large bowl.
  4. Stir into pumpkin mixture in 2 additions, using a silicone spatula. Fold in nuts, if desired.
  5. Divide batter equally between prepared pans. Bake until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes.
  6. Transfer to racks, and let cool for 10 minutes. Using a butter knife, cut around the edge of loaves. Turn loaves out onto racks, and cool completely.
