Now for those of you who love pumpkin, let’s make some bread! 



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix the oil and sugar together with an electric mixer until well incorporated.
  3. Add eggs, water, and pumpkin puree and mix thoroughly.
  4. In a separate bowl, blend the cassava flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and cloves together.
  5. Gradually add dry mix to the pumpkin mixture. Fold in nuts if desired.
  6. Pour into a greased and floured (or parchment-lined) 8x4-inch loaf pan and bake for 65-70 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Note: Remember to use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie mix. You can make your own from a fresh pumpkin (directions below!) or buy canned puree. 

How to make pumpkin puree from scratch

Making pumpkin puree from scratch is easy. Make sure you get a small baking pumpkin. They are also known as “pie pumpkins,” “sweet pumpkins,” or “sugar pumpkins.” Like their name implies, they’re sweeter than the big ones used for decorating or pumpkin carving. Assume you’ll get about a cup of puree per pound of pumpkin. 

To make the puree, simply cut the pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds (you can throw some salt on them and bake them later if you wish). Scoop out the stringy fibers as well. Then bake the pumpkin face down on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake until the flesh is pulling away from the skin, about 40-60 minutes at 400°F. 

Once the pumpkin is baked, take it out and let it cool. Then scoop it into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add the puree to anything that needs more pumpkin. You can try throwing any extra you have in an autumnal smoothie!

Go nuts!

Nuts are optional in this pumpkin bread, but you can add pecans or walnuts to complement the pumpkin flavor without distracting from it. You could even try topping it with pumpkin seeds for a festive crunch. If nuts and seeds aren’t your thing, you could add chocolate chips or a chopped bar for chocolatey pumpkin bread. 

Health benefits of pumpkin

Did you know pumpkin doesn’t just add flavor? It has been linked to numerous health benefits. Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, C, and E which can even boost your immune system! We need all the vitamins we can get these days, especially in the middle of cold and flu season. Pumpkin also contains antioxidants (alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and more) which fight free radicals in your body. Pumpkin may even help skin health and improve eyesight.
