Step-By-Step Instructions For Making Vegan Spiced Pumpkin Bread

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a loaf pan with coconut oil.
  2. Prepare your ingredients by measuring out the required amounts of dry and wet ingredients separately. In a large mixing bowl, pour in the dry ingredients and whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients, such as milk and vinegar, until well combined. (You can also turn this bread recipe into a one-bowl vegan pumpkin bread by adding all the ingredients into one bowl.)
  3. Slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture while stirring continuously until the batter is smooth and free of lumps. This will ensure that the ingredients are evenly distributed and that the final product is a moist vegan pumpkin bread.
  4. Pour the mixture into a loaf mold lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
  5. Allow the pumpkin bread to cool on a wire rack.

Tips And Tricks For Perfecting Your Vegan Spiced Pumpkin Bread

Choose the right pumpkin: Opt for small sugar pumpkins or butternut squash, as they tend to have a sweeter and more flavorful flesh, making your bread even tastier.

Adjust the spices: Experiment with different combinations of warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger to find your perfect blend. Don’t be afraid to add a little extra spice for an extra kick of flavor. Use pumpkin pie spices and apple pie spices, or make your own combination.

Best way to store pumpkin bread

Place pumpkin bread in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag to store it at room temperature. It will stay fresh for up to 4 days.

To freeze pumpkin bread, wrap it tightly in plastic. Then, place it in a freezer-safe bag or container. Pumpkin bread can be frozen for up to 2 months.

To thaw pumpkin bread:

  • At room temperature: Place the wrapped pumpkin bread on the counter for 2-3 hours or until it is completely thawed.
  • In the refrigerator: Place the wrapped pumpkin bread overnight to thaw.
  • In the microwave: Microwave the wrapped pumpkin bread on high for 30-60 seconds or until it is thawed.

Tips for storing and freezing pumpkin bread:

  • Cool completely before storing or freezing.  Cool over wire racks; this will help to prevent the bread from becoming soggy.
  • Wrap tightly to prevent freezer burn.
  • Label and date the wrapped bread. This will help you track how long it has been stored.
  • Freeze individual slices of bread for quick and easy snacks.
  • Thaw pumpkin bread at room temperature for the best flavor and texture.

Variations

Spiced pumpkin bread with nuts and seeds: Add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts or seeds to the batter. Some good options include walnuts, pecans, almonds, sunflower, and pumpkin seeds.

Spiced pumpkin bread with chocolate chips: Add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the batter. You can use any chocolate chip, such as semisweet, milk chocolate, or white chocolate.

Spiced pumpkin bread with streusel topping: For the streusel topping, combine 1/4 cup of flour, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of butter, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Crumble the mixture together with your fingers until it forms coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the streusel topping over the pumpkin bread batter before baking.

Maple glaze: ½ cup of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Sprinkle some flaky or Maldon salt to finish.

Nutritional Benefits Of Vegan Spiced Pumpkin Bread

Even though this vegan spiced pumpkin bread is a delicious treat, it is made with pumpkin puree, which has some nutritional value. The use of pumpkin adds an abundance of vitamins and minerals to the bread.

Pumpkins are an excellent source of vitamin A, which supports eye health and boosts the immune system. They also contain vitamin C, an antioxidant that supports collagen production for healthy skin.

Moreover, vegan spiced pumpkin bread contains no cholesterol or saturated fats since it is made without eggs or butter. This makes it a heart-healthy option that can be enjoyed guilt-free by those following a plant-based or vegan lifestyle.

Serving Suggestions

Toast a slice and spread it with a generous layer of vegan cream cheese or almond butter. Alternatively, serve warm slices with a dollop of coconut whipped cream for an indulgent dessert. If you’re looking to add some extra taste and crunch, top your slices with toasted pecans or pumpkin seeds for added texture and flavor.

To take your vegan spiced pumpkin bread to the next level, consider some delicious variations. Add a handful of dairy-free chocolate chips to the batter before baking for an irresistible twist on this classic treat. Alternatively, mix in dried cranberries or raisins for bursts of sweetness throughout the loaf. For those who enjoy a hint of spice, sprinkle some cinnamon or nutmeg on top before baking.
