  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin purée
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9×5 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin purée, eggs, oil, water, and sugar until well blended.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.
  4. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
  6. Bake for about 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaves comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow the bread to cool in the pans for about 10 minutes. Then remove them from the pans and place them on a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Slice and serve the pumpkin bread.
