Many many years ago, when I first started this blog, one of the very first recipes that I shared was a fall family favorite. I posted my grandmother’s pumpkin bread recipe which our family looks forward to each and every year! I usually make several batches of that recipe the week before Thanksgiving. My mom used to do the same thing, as did her mom (my grandmother) before her. We make up lots of pumpkin bread and in addition to enjoying in on Thanksgiving, we freeze lots of loaves to enjoy over the winter. The only drawback to that recipe is that it is very time consuming.

The scratch recipe takes time and requires a bunch of ingredients.

That is why I am excited to share this SIMPLE box cake mix pumpkin bread recipe today! You might enjoy using it as a simple alternative to the traditional recipe.

Before we get started, check out some of the other pumpkin recipes that we have on the blog.

    This bread is rather dense for my liking.. To help lighten it up, simply mix in an egg with the other ingredients. It makes a drastic difference.

    • In reading the recipe I thought it would be dense as well so I added 1 egg and 1/4 cup of oil before I came across your comment. I agree, the egg makes a difference and my coworkers loved it. So today I’m making mini loafs to share at Thanksgiving.
