New England Pumpkin Bread


New England Pumpkin Bread is my version of Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread. I haven’t been to Maine so I can’t claim it’s 100% like the real thing, but I’ve tasted plenty of other spiced pumpkin cakes along the East coast and I think this recipe captures the true essence of them!

This is a really tasty and warming pumpkin bread, spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and ginger and rich with sweet pumpkin flavor. Using vegetable oil instead of butter gives it a lighter crumb, meaning tastes super soft and light (and is too easy to eat more of!). Perfect with tea and coffee, but I really recommend serving a slice warm from the oven with a dollop of creme fraiche or ice cream. Heaven!

So, how to make New England Pumpkin Bread?

Steps to make New England Pumpkin Bread


Heat the oven and prepare loaf tins


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease and three small loaf tins and then dust with flour.


Combine the wet ingredients and sugar


Add the pumpkin puree, sugar, eggs, oil, and water to a large bowl and stir to combine.


Combine the dry ingredients


Sift the flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, baking soda, and salt into a separate bowl and combine.


Mix the batter


Add the flour mixture a little at a time to the pumpkin mixture and stir until just mixed. Pour the batter into the prepared tins.


Bake the loaves


Place the tins in the oven and bake for about 50 minutes. Test the loaves by inserting a toothpick into the center of a loaf; if it comes out clean, the loaf is ready.
