Pumpkin Guts Bread

I made this pumpkin guts bread during PumpkinPalooza at my house, alongside the pumpkin cream cheese roll and double layer chocolate cake with pumpkin cream cheese filling and chocolate glaze. It was real yummy. Just saying. I actually made two small loaves of the bread to share with coworkers, and used some of the bread batter to bake the bread in two big jars to send jar cakes overseas to my husband and his friend in Afghanistan. A little home-baked taste of home.

Update: Just added two new pictures from Emily who tried the recipe at home and said it was a hit with her family!

Pumpkin Guts Bread Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups of fresh pumpkin guts, pureed
  • 3.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 0.5 cups water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • A handful of chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Pumpkin Guts Bread Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9″ loaf pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper. Mix the flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar in large mixing bowl. Add eggs, water, vegetable oil and pureed pumpkin guts. Mix completely. If you are including nuts in the recipe mix them in now. Mix well. Pour into your prepared loaf pans and bake for about one hour, or until your toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry. Cool the pumpkin gut bread loaves for a bit, then turn them out of the pans and cool completely on the racks. Or sneak a piece while it’s still warm… Enjoy!

    Mmm. Now I have to go buy some loaf pans. I should have thought of that while I was at Ikea this weekend. (I love visiting friends in cities that have Ikea.)

    At least I was able to buy a new mixing spoon after my old one melted in the pan while I tried to make fudge last week.

    I just baked this bread and it smells so good. I can’t wait until it cools so I can try it. Yummmm!

  4. Meredith says:

    When making this recipe do you use the side walls of the pumpkin or the stringy innards?

  5. marie says:

    Do you think I can make the the bread as cupcakes?

    • Heather says:

      Definitely! Just plan to bake them with a much shorter cooking time like muffins/cupcakes. (Try 15-18 minutes? Monitor closely, I’m totally guessing.)

    Absolutely wonderful! Extremely east to make and the flavor is divine. My granddaughter and I even stuck our fingers in the batter and it was hard not to get a spoon! Thank you for sharing!!

  7. Ashley says:

    May I substitute the vegetable oil for sunflower oil instead?

  8. Ashley says:

    And I include the seeds in the puree?

  9. Jen says:

    Wow, this bread turned out great!

    On a side note, I substituted cake flour in for the all-purpose flour, and canola oil instead of vegetable oil.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  10. […] to the Pumpkin Guts Bread Cristin and I concocted using the innards of our new jack-o-lanterns and this five star recipe. Our 2 medium pumpkins yielded 1 and 2/3 cups of guts, and while the process […]

    One of my absolute FAVORITE seasonal things to make during the fall. My husband and I love this recipe. Haven’t found anyone that has tried it and doesn’t like it when I make it. I can’t even tell you how many loaves and muffins I made last year. I substitute pumpkin spice for the cinnamon and nutmeg. Usually because I don’t have nutmeg. lol Looking forward to making this soon!
