  • 4 cups pumpkin puree, canned or fresh roasted
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup olive oil, or vegetable oil
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 2 cups raisins or nuts or chocolate chips...or a combo!, optional


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Grease and sugar 4 9" loaf pans; or you can use 8 small loaf pans for gifting. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl stir together the pumpkin, sugar, eggs, and olive oil, until well combined. In my KitchenAid I used the lowest "Stir" setting. Or you can just stir it together with a large fork. No mixer needed!
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt.
  • If using, add the raisins and/or nuts now to the flour mixture and stir to coat well with the flour.
  • Mix half of the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture, until combined; then mix the other half in. I used my KitchenAid on 4 for this step. Or just stir it together.
  • When the ingredients are all well combined, fill each loaf pan about halfway up and spread the batter flat on top. (If you don't have 4 loaf pans, fill one or two and bake, then cool for 10 minutes, remove the bread and refill the pans and bake.)
  • Bake in preheated oven. The large loaf pans should take about an hour. The smaller pans will take 40 - 45 minutes. They are done when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.


Gr8 Do Ahead Tip:

Use 8 small loaf pans and freeze for up to 2 months. Wrap them in plastic wrap then put into freezer bags. You will be happy to have this part of your holiday baking done ahead of time!
