Guru Tips:

  • Try finely grating a whole nutmeg (same measurements from the recipe) for enhancing spice flavor.
  • Add a cup of nuts (walnuts or pecans), dark chocolate chips, or raisins.
  • The recipe can be doubled.


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 (15oz) Canned Pumpkin Puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 2/3 cup water


  • 1 Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bread pans with butter, so batter doesn’t stick.
  • 2 Add all ingredient together in a large bowl, then mix well with electric mixer.
  • 3 Hand mix optional ingredients such as a cup of semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, pecans, or raisins into the bowl.
  • 4 Spoon batter about halfway or a bit more in the loaf pans. Bake for about 1 hour until loaf is cooked and springs back (test by putting a toothpick in the center and when it comes out clean, it’s ready). Be careful not to overcook; it makes the bread a bit dryer.
