Starbucks Pumpkin Bread

Starbucks Pumpkin Bread is a favorite of so many of us. This bread is well spiced and so moist. Have you ever thought for a minute what a whole loaf of pumpkin bread would cost if you purchased it from Starbucks? I can show you how to make this delicious bread with a few simple ingredients.

So often I have pulled into Starbucks drive-thru and ordered myself a coffee and a slice of pumpkin bread and went on my merry way. Starbucks is known for their delicious treats, but sometimes Starbucks isn’t very kind on the wallet. Maybe like you, I don’t always want to spend 10 dollars on breakfast.

Pumpkin bread is actually easy to make. Now if you don’t happen to have all of the spices on hand, you can use pumpkin pie spice which you may already have in your spice cabinet. I just love the flavors of the cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, clove, and allspice.

If you can’t find pumpkin seeds you could use chopped walnuts or pecans. It won’t be quite like Starbucks, but it will still be very good. My local store happens to sell these in their bulk section so they are relatively inexpensive.

  • All-purpose flour
  • Sugar

How to Make Starbucks Pumpkin Bread

This recipe is a quick bread, so this means that we mix our wet and dry ingredients first separately, and then we mix them together. I find if the dry ingredients are sifted it makes for a better bread. The bread will be airier and have a uniform texture. You don’t want to over-mix a quick bread, you want to mix it just long enough to get the lumps out.

In a large bowl add all of the dry ingredients; flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, salt, and spices. Sift the dry ingredients together.

In a smaller bowl mix together the eggs, oil, pumpkin puree, and vanilla.

Pour liquid mixture over the dry ingredients. Stir until the lumps are out. Do not over-stir the mixture.

Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.

Sprinkle pumpkin seeds on top of the bread batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 – 60 minutes.

Cool for approximately 5 minutes in the pan, and then turn the pumpkin bread onto a cooling rack.

The bread cuts best when allowed to cool completely.

    It tasted really good, I myself could taste the baking soda though. I think I will try it with a little less to see if that helps.

    Just so everyone knows. When pumpkin seeds have the shell on they are white. When they are “shelled” (out of the shell) they are green.

    Those sure do look like sunflower seeds on top of the finished loaf. Pumpkin seeds are white, much larger and usually flatter . Did everyone who made this recipe use roasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds?
