Pumpkin Bread

pumpkin bread

I stumbled on this recipe last week and, knowing I had some canned pumpkin in the cupboard, thought I’d give it a try.

This pumpkin bread (or loaf) is known as the Monastery of the Angels’ Pumpkin Bread, and is reputed to be the recipe used by the nuns in the Monastery in California. All I know is that it made a darned good pumpkin bread (or loaf).

This recipe makes 3 loaves but it freezes beautifully, so you can enjoy one right away and freeze a couple for later.

  1. Hi Trish, Dragon, Anon and Katerina. Katerina, I picked up a bunch of loaf pans when they were on sale a while back (helps with my bread-baking habit as well). And I’m definitely into adding a bit of whole wheat whenever I can as well. Great idea! I’ll try that next time.

  2. Go, I LOVE pumpkin bread, although I do not own three loaf pans.
    I also find you can definitely substitute some whole wheat flour for regular, if that’s something you are into.

  3. This bread sounds amazing!
