  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter (softened)
  • 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 15 oz can of 100% pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 325F. Use a baking nonstick spray to grease your loaf pans and set aside.
  • Next, make your batter. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Once thoroughly combined, set aside.
  • In a separate large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer on low to medium speed until slightly blended. Add in the eggs one at a time. Beat the mixture until light and fluffy before adding in the pumpkin. Add the flour mixture into the wet mixture about 1/3 of a cup at a time until thoroughly incorporated. Split the batter evenly between the two loaf pans, sprinkling optional chopped walnuts on one or both of the loaves.
  • Bake the loaves between 60-75 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the loaves to cool for about 15 minutes in their pans before placing on a wire rack and cooling completely. Serve at room temp or toasted with a glass of cold milk.
