Grandma’s Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Grandma’s Pumpkin Bread is so very easy to make and so very quick to disappear.  (However, I do use canned pumpkin even though Grandma cooked her own.)

Prep:  10 minutes | Cook: 1 1/2 hours | Yield:  2 loaves

Pumpkin Bread

Grandma’s Pumpkin Bread


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cups water
  • 2 cans (15 oz) of pure pumpkin
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease and flour two large loaf pans.
  2. Cream together sugar and oil.  Beat in eggs, vanilla, and water.  Mix in pumpkin.
  3. Sift together flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.  Stir into pumpkin mixture.  Add pecans.  Stir until well blended.  Pour batter into two prepared loaf pans.  Bake for 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Allow loaves to sit for 5-10 minutes, then remove loaves from pan to rack to cool completely.
