This is an easy one-bowl, no-mixer pumpkin bread recipe!

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

Pumpkin Loaf Quick Bread Ingredients | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #fall #tea #pumpkin #porch #pumpkinbread #recipe

3 large eggs, room temperature

1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree

2/3 cup canola or vegetable oil

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

3/4  teaspoon kosher salt

1 1/2 cups *all-purpose flour

*Note: To make this gluten free, swap out all-purpose flour for

King Arthur Gluten-Free Measure for Measure Flour.

You’ll need a 9 x 5 loaf pan for this recipe.

For easy removal, spray your pan with nonstick spray and line your pan with parchment paper 

that hangs over the edge of your pan. The spray will keep your paper in place and

from slipping so no batter gets underneath the paper.

Parchment is nonstick so you can lift the bread out of the pan using the ends of the paper.

Parchment paper also helps neutralize hot spots as a barrier between the pan and your batter.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 55 – 65 minutes, or until a toothpick

inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Check your bread at the 40 minute mark to tent the top with foil and prevent overbrowning if needed.

Glass vs. Metal Pans:

The insulating properties of glass make it slow to heat up

and consequently it retains heat longer than metal.

If you have ever baked brownies or a cake in a glass pan, you probably discovered

to your dismay that the edges are hard and dry by the time the center has set.

The rule of thumb for baking in a glass pan is to lower the 

 oven temperature by 25°F and bake up to 10 minutes longer.

You can read more about choosing the right pan from King Arthur Flour, HERE.

For the Maple Glaze:

Mix 1 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar with 3 tablespoons maple syrup.

Add 1 – 2 tablespoons milk or half and half, thinning to your desired consistency.

Pour over your cooled loaf and allow to set before slicing and serving.

 We had some wonderful cool weather last week when I was photographing,

with mornings in the upper 50s and low 60s. Not exactly sweater weather,

 but a welcome drop in humidity and a teaser of fall weather to come!

Join me for some tea on the porch and a slice of Pumpkin Loaf Bread!

I found this pumpkin teapot and teacups with sculpted leaves

at my favorite pumpkin patch, HomeGoods, several years ago.

A matching pitcher is filled with garden blooms. . .

Hydrangeas that have begun their fall metamorphosis,

and join late blooming zinnias, sprigs from the abelia shrubs

and seed pods from the chaste tree, for some added texture.

Prep Time10 mins

Course: Breakfast, Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: fall, maple glaze, no mixer, one bowl recipe, pumpkin bread, pumpkin loaf, pumpkin spice, quick bread
Servings: 12

Equipment

  • 9 x 5 loaf pan

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • cups pumpkin puree
  • cup canola oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • cups all-purpose flour

For Maple Glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar sifted
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons milk or half and half

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F . Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray and line with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In medium-large bowl, combine flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt; whisk together to combine. Transfer combined ingredients onto large piece of parchment or wax paper; set aside.
  • Place eggs in same medium-large bowl and whisk well.
  • Add pumpkin and whisk until smooth. Add oil, white and brown sugars and the vanilla. Mix until well combined.
  •  Using edges of paper, pour flour mixture into bowl, stirring until the flour has disappeared and no large lumps remain.
  • Transfer batter to prepared pan, smoothing the top.
  • Bake 55-65 minutes, checking after 40-45 minutes. If the top seems to be getting too brown, tent the top loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning.
  • Return to the oven and finish baking, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Cool in pan 5 minutes, then lift out by parchment paper and transfer to wire rack to cook completely before slicing.
  • When cool, drizzle with maple glaze.

To make Maple Glaze:

  • Mix sifted confectioners’ sugar with 3 tablespoons maple syrup.
  • Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time, thinning to desired consistency.
  • Drizzle over cool bread. Allow glaze to firm before slicing.

Notes

  • Don't be tempted to substitute melted butter for oil in this recipe as the oil makes bread tender and moist. 
  • In addition to being nonstick, parchment paper helps neutralize hot spots as a barrier between the pan and your batter.
  • When measuring flour, spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off excess with a knife. Scooping directly from the bag yields a heavier cup, resulting in dry baked goods.
  • Glass takes longer to heat up, and then acts an an insulator, staying hot longer than metal. For baking in glass, lower the oven temperature by 25°F from what the recipe calls for, and bake up to 10 minutes longer.
  • To make gluten-free, substitute King Arthur Gluten-Free Measure for Measure Flour for all-purpose.

    Good morning, Mary. I would be delighted to join you for tea and a slice of the delicious pumpkin bread with maple glaze! The sculpted leaves teapot and teacups are beautiful as they serve up vanilla chai black tea. The matching pitcher is serving up a beautiful mix of hydrangeas, zinnias, abelia sprigs, and chaste tree seed pods for a lovely autumn arrangement. As always, the girls are so cute adding their personalities to your tea on the porch. Porch sitting is a simple pleasure to be enjoyed anytime, but especially in the fall season!

    Once again we are back in the 90’s here, but I have all things autumn on my mind. It is a pleasure to join you for Tea on Tuesdays 🧡

    Good morning Mary! I’d love to join the three of you on your porch for a spot of tea and a delicious slice of the pumpkin goodness. (Thank you for including the gluten-free version as I have to be gluten free.) What a beautiful setting for a fall morning or afternoon, hope springs eternal as here in California we are back to heading towards the high 80’s also. But fall is in the air! Your pumpkin tea pot and cups are so darling, so fun to serve up your favorite vanilla chai tea. Thank you so much for inviting me to join you and Pam for your Tea on Tuesdays! I’m honored, dear friend. Wishing you everything pumpkin spice and autumn breezes, xo Lidy

    Love, love, love the settings, recipes, and sweet puppies. Planning to create your recipes this week to share with friends. Your settings are gorgeous and the fur babies are precious. Don’t know how they resist the goodies. LOL Could I ask you the name of the china that the scone is resting on? If it is still available. would love to add it to my fall collection.

      Thank you Judith! The plate is vintage, it’s marked Colonial Pottery, Stoke England “Grace”. Thank you for your visit. ♥

    Just delightful Mary! Your porch setting with autumn colors and white is so inviting, I don’t blame Sophie and Lola for wanting to snuggle up with your pumpkin, pillow and cozy throw! The white teapot, cup and pitcher are just beautiful, I love the 3D leaves on them. I love the pumpkin board too. Your bread sounds delicious, tis the season for pumpkin everything! 🎃

    Mary, Your tea time treat looks delicious! Thanks for the recipe. I always enjoy seeing your sweet girls! They know how to pose for treats whether you’re ready with the camera or not! 😂The weather teased us last week too, but today with the heat index, we’ll be over 100! Your tea time setting is so pretty. That’s a cute teapot! Stay cool. Clara ❤️

    • September 20, 2022 at 6:12 pm

      Thank you for your visit and comment Clara! We’re in the 90s this week through Friday…a triple digit heat index is way too hot for this time of year. Stay cool ♥

    I am all in for pumpkin in its season, and bread (or pie) is my preference, not in those frothy drinks (which I am not even familiar enough with to even know how to order!). Your tea looks perfect, the flowers from your garden make a bouquet even prettier than you could’ve purchased. And Lola cracks me up, trying to move in next to Sophie. She’s looking at her as if to say “could move your big butt so I can sit here too?”🤣 Happy teatime Tuesday!

    • September 20, 2022 at 6:15 pm

      Me too Rita! Yes, Lola is a bit of a diva and used to having ‘her’ spot. :) Happy Tuesday. ♥

  16. September 20, 2022 at 3:27 pm

    Mary, I may need to bake some pumpkin bread. Thanks for inviting me to join you in this lakeside setting with two darling pups. Everything is so inviting!
    The pumpkin tea pot is calling my name, but my practical side says I don’t need another tea pot. Then there is that pitcher!!! I would really like to find one of those. Your have beautiful tabletop collections, Mary! Love the pumpkin pillow too. Thanks for a delightful teatime.

    I adore fall and was going to say how delicious your cake looked but sadly the girls were so cute they stole the show! We had a rare storm come through, from 118 degrees to 54 degrees was like manna from heaven, first time I baked in my kitchen in 6 months! Temps climb up this week again, but fun relishing your fall moments!

  20. September 22, 2022 at 11:27 am

    I am a fan of neutrals, so I am totally crushing on your tea set. Thank you for providing an Amazon link. Your pumpkin loaf looks delicious. I go pumpkin baking crazy at this time of the year, so I’m going to give your recipe a try. Happy first day of fall!

  21. September 22, 2022 at 3:15 pm

    I wish you had a link to the pumpkin pillow on the bench. That is beautiful! I will be making the pumpkin bread and will send the recipe for the scones to my friend who loves making scones. Thanks so much, Mary!
