Fall is just a good excuse to eat pumpkin bread. Besides the fact that pumpkin is really good for you, and pumpkin bread is a favorite for Thanksgiving dinner! 


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ½ tablespoons water
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • dash fruit fresh (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a large bowl, blend sugar, pumpkin, oil, vanilla, and water.
  • Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, ground cloves, and fruit fresh (optional) to bowl with wet ingredients. Blend.
  • Spray a bread pan with non-stick spray. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 50 minutes or until cooked through (place a knife into the center of the bread and if it comes out clean, it is cooked through, if not bake for 5 more minutes and test again).
