Pumpkin Pecan Bread

Pumpkin Pecan Bread - It's Fall in a loaf, y'all. I think homemade bread has to be one of the best things ever - it ranks right up there with fresh coffee, peanut butter cups and babies laughing. There's just something about those things that makes you smile. Well, they make me smile anyways! ;)

You can imagine how heavenly this smells while it bakes! You can smell the pumpkin and spices as they permeate the air! So delish! This loaf makes a great sandwich bread .... it's great toasted and slathered with butter, jelly and/or honey ... serve it as a side to a Fall soup .... really you can't go wrong. 

Of course, you can use your stand mixer or do this by hand if you prefer. It's not too difficult to do by hand, just more time consuming. I hope you give this a try - it's totally worth it!

Pumpkin Pecan Bread
Printable recipe
Yield: 1 loaf (12-16 servings)

½ cup warm milk
1¼ cups canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
3 tbsp. butter
4½ tbsp. sugar
¾ tsp. salt
1½ tsp. cinnamon
¾ tsp. ground ginger
¼ tsp. ground cloves
¾ cup chopped pecans
3 cups bread flour
1 tbsp. active dry yeast

In a bread machine pan, place all of the ingredients in the order suggested by the manufacturer. Select the dough only setting. After the bread machine signals that it is finished, punch down the dough and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough into a 11x7 rectangle. Starting on the long edge, roll up jelly-roll style, shaping into a loaf. Tuck ends under. Place in a well-greased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Cover and allow to rise for about 30 minutes, or until the dough is about an inch above the pan. Bake in a 400°F oven for 30 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing.

  1. Yum!! This looks fantastic!! I really need to invest in a stand mixer so I can make some more homemade breads! Pinning!

  2. I have a question, Jamie. I would like a recipe for pumpkin bread with either pecans or walnuts but with coconut added. Does tha sound weird? LOL this recipe sound perfect. If I wanted to add coconut any ideas how much I would need to add and if I need to increase any of the other ingredients to keep the consistency? Thanks a bunch!


    1. I don't think it sounds weird at all! I would try maybe half a cup at first and adjust it from there. You may need to play with the four water ratio a bit too! If you try it with coconut, I would love to hear how it turns out :)

  3. Looks delicious Jamie. Nothing better than homemade bread out of the oven. The pecans sound good in it. Pinned.

  5. Oh Jamie. Your blog always makes me so hungry! This bread looks wonderful! I have to make it!

  6. I would love a slice of this with a cup of coffee. As much as I like homegrown tomatoes in the summer, I look forward to pecans in the Fall 100 times more. Looks great, Jamie! And I bet it smells fantastic baking. Thanks for linking!

  13. Would I be able to bake this bread in a loaf pan in my oven? Unfortunately, I don't own a bread machine.

    1. Sure thing, Suzanne! I only used the bread machine to mix the dough! Of course, you can do that part by hand or with a stand mixer and just proceed with the baking time! :)


I love reading your comments. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and respond. :)
