What makes Pumpkin Bread Moist?

  • The amount of pumpkin plays a huge roll in perfecting moist pumpkin bread and adding a bit more pumpkin adds extra flavor and texture without leaving the bread too soft or mushy.
  • Oil is also a big factor with keeping the bread moist. With this recipe, the pumpkin and spices overpower the oil flavor and the oil keeps the texture incredibly moist for a long time.

How to Store Pumpkin Bread?

  • Store the bread in the loaf pan and wrap it in aluminum foil, or store in an air-tight container.
  • This bread will keep in the fridge for up to 10 days. When you want a slice, just pop it in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds and it’s good as new! I can pretty much guarantee that this bread will not last even close to 10 days because it’s SO GOOD!

Can you Freeze Pumpkin Bread?

Yes! Pumpkin bread freezes well. Make sure to cool at room temperature, then wrap the loaves well in plastic wrap making it as airtight as possible.  Wrap in foil over the plastic wrap or place the plastic wrapped loaf in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag.

Tips:

  • Cover the loaves loosely with a sheet of aluminum foil if the tops look like they are browning a bit too much for the last 15 minutes of baking.
  • Add in nuts, raisins or chocolate chips. However, we prefer this recipe just the way it is.
