  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup oil (I use sunflower oil; canola or vegetable are good, too)
  • 15 oz. can 100% pure pumpkin puree (NOT pie filling)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 packages (3 oz. each) cook & serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Grease (5) small loaf pans (approx. 5 3/4 x 3 x 2 size).
  • Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add oil and pumpkin, beating until smooth.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, pudding mix, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir to combine. Gradually add to the pumpkin mixture, beating after each addition.
  • Divide the batter equally between the loaf pans. Place pans on a large baking sheet prior to placing in the oven.
  • Bake for approximately 40 minutes. Bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool in pans for 10 minutes, then turn onto a wire cooling rack until completely cooled.


  • Bread can be made in 2 larger loaf pans, adjusting for a slightly longer bake time.
  • To freeze: Wrap cooled loaves in a double layer of plastic wrap and place in freezer bags. I'm not sure how long they keep as we usually eat them within 2 weeks. To use, defrost in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Order pudding mix online if you can't purchase it locally.
