Cooler Weather and Aunt Linda’s Pumpkin Bread

My kitchen smells amazing!  Just like I long for all year long!!!

There’s nothing like the smell of my Aunt Linda’s Pumpkin Bread and the weather has actually started to cool off here in Florida.  It can’t get any better than this!

Aunt Linda's Pumpkin Bread

I LOVE my Aunt Linda.  She’s more like a mom to me than an aunt.  We are so much alike that I wished we lived closer to one another.  I treasure the time I get with her every time I go visit her in North Carolina.

Fall doesn’t start until I make her pumpkin bread.  Really, it doesn’t.  I’ve tweaked her recipe just a little bit to fit with some of my baking criteria.  I love this recipe because I literally just put everything in the mixer bowl and start it.  It’s that easy.  It may take roughly 15 minutes for prep.  Ridiculous when you get this much yumminess!


Here’s the recipe:

Aunt Linda's Pumpkin Bread

  • Servings: 6-8 slices
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

3 1/2 cups of unbleached flour

2 2/3 cup of coconut sugar

1 1/2 tsp. of salt

1/2 tsp. of baking powder

2 tsp. of baking soda

4 eggs

2 tsp. of cinnamon

1 tsp. of cloves

1 tsp. of nutmeg

2 cans of organic pumpkin

2/3 cups of coconut oil

2/3 cups of water

1 cup of pumpkin seeds


Place all ingredients in bowl and mix thoroughly.  Pour into a greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for an hour.

*I replaced the sugar with coconut sugar and the oil with coconut oil.  I also added pumpkin seeds instead of walnuts (what her recipe calls for).


I use Organic Pumpkin that has a BPA free lined can


Unbleached flour is the way to go or better yet, get your own grains and a mill and grind your own. I recommend buying from Pantry Paratus.



Coconut Sugar


Fresh Grated Nutmeg


Coconut Oil…oh, so yummy!


Into the oven they go!


Once cooled, wrap them in foil and place in freezer.  They are great for taking to a sick friend or I am taking one to my good friend Annette so they can have something yummy for breakfast tomorrow.



If you are like me, you will slice a piece right when it comes out of the oven.  I know, I am bad, but if you don’t then Aunt Linda might get mad! 🙂


Enjoy and Happy Baking!

    Is that grandpas mixer in the background? LOL

    • Yes, that’s Paw Paw’s mixer. That thing must be at least 60 years old and still going strong!!
