This is my go-to pumpkin bread and I always get rave reviews. It’s quick and easy to make and wonderfully moist. Plus you’ll end up with 3 loaves! Perfect for entertaining or to freeze one for later use. Don’t skip the sifting of the dry ingredients–it really adds to the texture.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 7x3-inch loaf pans.
Mix together pumpkin puree, sugar, oil, water, eggs, and vanilla extract in a large bowl until well blended. Whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and ginger in a second bowl. Sift flour mixture on top of the pumpkin mixture and fold in with a spatula until just blended. Pour into the prepared pans.
Bake in the preheated oven until nicely browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

The quality of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which doesn’t always rise as well as white bread.
To made this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it night before , then finish it off the next day.
