My Bakery-Style Pumpkin Ginger Muffins were so popular that I had to make another variation on the recipe. Say hello to the only pumpkin bread recipe you will ever need: crunchy topped, tender crumbed, perfectly moist and sweet with warm autumnal spices.
To all of my fellow pumpkin-spice lovers, consider this your go-to pumpkin bread recipe. It’s perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or even dessert! It’s incredibly versatile: you can eat it plain or with your favorite spread (butter, nut butter or even jam), enjoy it on the go, or pull it out when unexpected guests arrive for afternoon tea. Go one step further and surprise a friend of neighbor with a loaf to brighten their day! It may be gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free, but we’re not sacrificing any flavor here.

How To Make My Ultimate Bakery-Style Pumpkin Bread
Step 1. Preheat oven and spray a standard 9×5 inch loaf pan with nonstick baking spray and line with a parchment paper sling.
Step 2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or using a large bowl and whisk, briefly whisk together all dry ingredients.
Step 3. Add to the bowl the pumpkin, coconut oil, and coconut sugar and mix to combine so there are no flour streaks visible.
Step 4. Add the eggs and whisk for 10 seconds more to combine.
Step 5. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and smooth the top. Using a sharp knife, make a 1 inch slit down the length of the bread.
Step 6. Sprinkle the top with demerara sugar, if desired.
Step 7. Bake for 55-60 minutes until a tester comes out clean.
Step 8. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
Step 9. Enjoy!
What Else Can I Use?
- Don’t have coconut sugar? Use brown sugar, or a combination of brown and white instead
- The Demerara sugar (otherwise known as cane sugar) is optional, but adds that quintessential, crystalized bakery-style crunchy top
- Use regular all purpose flour instead of gluten free if desired
- If you have Pumpkin Pie Spice on hand you can replace the ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg with about 2 teaspoons of that
- Neutral Oils include vegetable, light olive oil, sunflower oil, canola, and the like. Use any you have.
This Ultimate Bakery-Style Pumpkin Bread is special because:
You get that delicious, melt in your mouth, bakery-style loaf without having to leave your house
The loaf freezes well, perfect for pulling out for unexpected guests
It’s the perfect after school snack because it is gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free (if you choose to make it this way), great for any variety of dietary requirements
It stays moist and tender for up to 4 days
