Helpful Tips

  • Crack your eggs into a separate bowl and then pour the eggs into the recipe. This helps avoid eggshells as it’s easier to see them and remove them from a separate bowl.
  • Be sure to get canned pumpkin and not canned pumpkin pie filling.
  • This recipe can sometimes take a bit longer to bake. Be sure to make sure it is done by inserting a wooden pick. If it comes out clean, it is done. If not, put the bread back in for about 2 minutes at a time and keep checking.


  • Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans to the batter. Stir in just before transferring to loaf pans.
  • Add 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips to the batter. Stir in just before transferring to loaf pans.
  • Add 1/2 cup raisins to the batter. Stir in just before transferring to loaf pans.
