Better Than Starbucks Pumpkin Bread Recipe

This Starbucks pumpkin bread is my favorite go-to recipe.  The bread is extremely moist, slightly dense and full of fall spice flavor.  It’s more like a pumpkin pound cake in texture.

How to make Pumpkin Bread

Recipe by Todd Wilbur

It’s a very simple recipe. So simple you will be making it all the time!

I love pumpkin anything and don’t care if it’s not pumpkin season.  I will make this bread any time I have a craving.

Be prepared for it to disappear quickly. I swear this is the best pumpkin bread recipe from scratch.

flour and spices in a bowl

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease and flour an 8×4 or 9×5 inch loaf pan, set aside.

Place the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, and salt in a medium-size bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.

No need to purchase premade pumpkin pie spice for this recipe!

Starbucks Pumpkin Bread batter in a mixing bowl

In a large bowl beat the eggs, sugars, and vanilla together on high for 30 seconds.

Add the pumpkin puree and vegetable oil to the wet ingredients and mix well with an electric mixer. ( I use a handheld.) Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix well.

Pour the pumpkin bread batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

I’m not a fan of chocolate with pumpkin but if you are, add about 1 cup of chocolate chips before baking. Also, if you like, sprinkle pumpkin seeds on the top before baking.

Let the pumpkin bread cool before slicing, if you can. I usually let it cool just enough to easily remove from the pan.

Stay home, pour yourself a cup of freshly brewed coffee, and enjoy a nice warm slice of bread just loaded with pumpkin flavor!

This makes a great friend and neighbor gift too. Who wouldn’t love to receive a homemade Pumpkin Bread fresh from the oven?

I warn you this bread is addictive! You will make it all year long.

    This was really good but a tad dry. We put some butter on it and it was fantastic! Thanks for sharing!

      Hi, Keri. I’m sorry you thought this bread was a tad dry. It calls for 4 eggs and 3/4 cup oil, I’ve never had this pumpkin bread come out dry.

    Delicious!! Everyone loved it. I tried a different “Starbucks” copycat and it was hard. This one was perfect I doubled the brown sugar and added more of the spices. Best part I added pepita seeds to the top and this made it even more delicious. A must try. Recipe as written makes 1 loaf.5 stars
