How to make bread machine pumpkin bread

Bread machine pumpkin bread is one of the easiest and tastiest things to make in the kitchen! Once you get into the way of making it you will be hooked. 

Bread machine pumpkin bread

If you own a bread machine, making this moist, fluffy pumpkin bread is super simple and easy. It’s almost no different than making regular bread.

Be prepared to make a bit of a mess and use up most, if not all of your counter space, but the aroma of fresh bread, pumpkin, and herbs will make your home smell heavenly. Definitely worth the mess!

If you want a smoother taste, you can omit the herbs altogether. Go with your favorites, or feel free to explore! I personally used thyme and sage, but basil, oregano, and marjoram would also be a good idea.

  • 1 tsp dry yeast


  1. In general, follow the instructions for your bread machine. 
  2. Pour the milk in first. 
  3. Mix the dry ingredients with the pumpkin and oil separately, then pour them into the machine. 
  4. Finally, add the yeast.
  5. Start the standard cycle for your bread machine. 
Pumpkin herb breadHere;s my pumpkin bread. It was fluffy, moist, and really tasty: one of the easiest things I’ve done in the kitchen.

It works really well with cream cheese, or on the side with a hot bowl of pumpkin soup on a cold fall day.

You can experiment with different sandwich fillings, such as stuffed with salad and hummus for a nutritious, delicious, and easy lunch.

For something this easy to make, it never fails to impress any friends you may have over. If you’re in a rush in the mornings, you can start it in the evening and have it waiting for you to spread some butter and jam on it first thing in the morning before you head out for work.

I am so tempted to take some of it to my kid’s school Fall fair and let everyone see how amazing it is.

Hi! This recipe sounds great and I'd love to try it, but I have a problem, or rather a question: I live in the Netherlands and we can't buy tins of pumpkin puree here. A while back I dehydrated some pumpkins and ground it into powder, thinking I could add water to make puree. However, I don't know how much water to use, What consistency am I looking for? Like does it run right out of the can or does it come out in a blob, like refried beans? I have absolutely no idea and would apreciate your advice.

Could you use spices instead of herbs and how much? Also, could you give exact metric measurements of flour and milk (cups and ounces) instead of millimeters and grams, please?

Could you please give me the tablespoon and teaspoon equivalent for your measurements?
