Delicious Pumpkin Bread

I love the smell of pumpkin and sweet potatoes but I have never been able to eat them. Trying them prepared many ways; pies, fries, gooey casseroles, etc., I always end up thinking "yuck!" Then I happened to come across this pumpkin bread recipe, after all, who doesn't like bread? I am please to say that I can now enjoy the pumpkin flavor along with that wonderful aroma.
2 1/2 cup All-purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 small box instant lemon pudding
1 small box instant butterscotch pudding
chopped nuts (optional)
15 ounce can pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup oil
5 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 2 small loaf pans. In a large bowl sift together your flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon pudding, and butterscotch pudding until well blended.
In a smaller bowl blend together pumpkin, sugar, oil, and eggs (adding one at a time). Once blended thoroughly, add in nuts and mix together.
 Once mixture is blended thoroughly, add in nuts and mix together.
Then you take your bowl of wet ingredients and add them to your dry; mix thoroughly. Pour evenly into your baking pans.
Bake for approximately 1 hour or until center if not sticky.


  1. Looks very good. I think I'll be trying that at Thanksgiving. I'm not a fan of sweet potatoes or pumpkin myself, which is too bad because they are so good for you. I like pumpkin muffins, though, so I think I'd like your bread recipe. I wonder how it would be with vanilla pudding instead of butterscotch? Hmmm.

  2. Yummm, I love pumpkin bread! But, I love pumpkin and sweet potatoes and most any squash as well.

  3. Yummy! Going to try this.


  4. I love yellow squash and zuchinni, it may be something about the orange color of pumpkin and sweet potatoes I don't

    I can't really taste the butterscotch pudding, but I bet vanilla would be delicious also.

  5. Instant pudding in bread? I've never heard of that, but it sounds so good!

  6. What a great recipe - thanks for sharing! This sounds fantastic

  7. Looks like a great recipe to try. I've made pumpkin muffins before, but never I'll see how it turns out.


Thank you for reading my post. I enjoy hearing your thoughts. Tisha
