This is an easy recipe for pumpkin bread that uses pecans or any nuts of choice. It’s redolent of pumpkin spices and makes a great snack, dessert, or even breakfast! Wonderful served with cream cheese or butter.


  • 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans (or nuts of choice)


  • Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, pumpkin, oil and water. Stir the pumpkin mixture into the dry mixture until just moistened (do not over-mix). Fold in the pecans. Pour into the prepared loaf pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 65-70 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
