• 3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups mashed fresh pumpkin (from boiled or roasted pumpkin)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  •  cup water
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (Optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 7×3-inch loaf pans.

  2. Stir flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl until well blended. Add mashed pumpkin, oil, water, and eggs; beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Fold in walnuts. Divide batter evenly among the prepared pans.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of each loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour.

  4. Remove from the oven and set pans on a wire rack. Let cool completely before slicing.


You can use pumpkin puree instead of cooked fresh pumpkin, and raisins instead of walnuts if desired.
