Is Pumpkin Bread Healthy?

Pumpkin bread is healthy because of the vitamins and minerals in the pumpkin itself. Since pumpkin is a good source of fiber, it can help curb your appetite. Therefore, it is a good choice to reach for when you want something sweet.

How Do you Know When Pumpkin Bread Is Done?

When the bread is done, it should have a crack in the top side of the bread. Another method is to stick a toothpick into the center of the bread and if it comes out clean, it is done and ready to come out of the oven. If your pumpkin bread batter sticks to the toothpick, leave it bake in the oven another five minute and recheck for doneness. Continue doing this until the toothpick inserted comes out clean and you see the crack in the top of the loaf.

How to Remove Pumpkin Bread from the Loaf Pan

Pumpkin bread is a quick bread and sometimes they can stick to the loaf pan. Therefore, to remove the bread loaf from the pan, let it cool 5-10 minutes at room temperature until you can touch the pan without burning your fingers.

Next run a butter knife it along the edge of the bread gently pulling the bread away from the pan a little.

Gently shake the pan on its side until the bread comes loose.

Place on a wire rack and continue to let the bread cool.

Pro Tip. Use spray oil or butter and grease the entire loaf pan, the bottom, and the sides. This will help the bread loaf release easier from the pan.

Sweet Bread with Frosting

Frost the Quick Bread

You can frost the entire bread loaf or frost individual slices. Once the bread is cool, I like to get the frosting all over the bread. If there is any extra that ran onto the plate, make sure to scoop that up and add it to each slice as you serve it.

The powdered sugar frosting is made from just 3 ingredients and a few minutes.

Powdered Sugar Glaze for the Pumpkin Bread

 1 ½ Cups Powdered Sugar

½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract, or another flavor including lemon juice

5-7 Teaspoons Heavy Cream, milk, water, almond milk, or half and half would also work

I think with the frosting, it makes this the best pumpkin bread recipe.

How Long Does Pumpkin Bread Last in the Fridge?

Once the loaf is completely cool, the best way to store leftover pumpkin bread is to wrap in plastic wrap and aluminum foil or placed in a plastic bag and sealed. Store it in the refrigerator up to 7 days.

How to Freeze Pumpkin Bread

You can freeze this pumpkin loaf for up to four months when stored in an airtight container.

The next time you want to make something sweet, try this recipe. There is just one problem, I usually make thick slices. But if you eat this as your breakfast or brunch meal for the whole family, it is a great reason to eat a thicker slice. It’s a fall favorite at our house.
