Cake mix might be one of my best friends. I love how it turns lots of complicated, multiple-ingredient desserts into accessible recipes!

When I happened to find a recipe for pumpkin bread made with cake mix, I had to share it here. I know I’m not the only mom looking for easy recipes for family-friendly treats. Add in the fact that it’s fall and it’s a pumpkin recipe and it’s almost guaranteed to be a winner!

Pumpkin Bread Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a loaf pan.
  2. Consult your cake mix box and use the amount of eggs and oil as directed on the box.
  3. Combine cake mix, eggs and oil in a bowl and mix on medium speed until smooth and well-blended.
  4. Add pumpkin and cinnamon. Mix on low until incorporated.
  5. Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan.
  6. Bake at 375 for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Wait to cool, serve with butter or frost with cream cheese frosting.

I like to make most sweet breads in a mini loaf pan. My pan has 6 cavities, and I always divide up a recipe that makes one loaf of bread into the 6 portions for perfect little loaves. If you’re like me and you want to make yours in a mini loaf pan, just reduce the baking time by 10 minutes.

Enjoy your delicious and easy pumpkin bread!

  7. Just went into the kitchen to make pumpkin bread and found out I was out of flour. Found your page and I am going in right now to make it. I wanted to surprise my neighbor, but the surprise of no flour, was on me. I am sure she will love this recipe and so will my family. Thank you, Marybeth~~~

    • Just gave my husband a small cupcake sized piece. He loved it! Not dense like pumpkin bread, but very good. I put a little drizzle of thinned white frosting, and dropped tiny fall leaf candy decorations on top. Very pretty. I will use this recipe again.
