Ingredients Used in The Perfect Pumpkin Bread Recipe

When preparing delicious, homemade recipes, using high quality ingredients is key. Which is why I love reviewing this section in the majority of my blog posts!

Organic pumpkin puree is a great source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It is the main ingredient within this recipe, for obvious reasons.

Pasture raised eggs not only contain protein and omega-3 fatty acids, they also contain a handful of vitamins and minerals while providing richness and flavor. Review this article to understand the difference between marketing terms, and why I recommend purchasing pasture raised eggs.

Vanilla extract, sea salt, ceylon cinnamon, and Hu semi-sweet baking chocolate chips add the perfect touch of sweetness. Not to mention, they are exceptional ingredients I tend to use throughout a variety of my recipes!

How to Determine When the Bread is Done

I’m going to be honest, I totally botched this recipe the first time I made it. I poked a toothpick several times in different areas of the loaf, and every time it came out clean. However, the pumpkin bread was NOT done. From here on out, I will no longer be using a toothpick to determine if the pumpkin bread is done😂

The proper way to determine if a baked bread is done is by inserting a thermometer, waiting until the internal temperature reaches 190-200° F. Or, do what I did and use a butter knife to see if it comes out clean (larger surface area than a toothpick..).

Another side tip is to allow the pumpkin bread to cool for at least 30 minutes, making it easier to remove from the pan without falling apart. Patience is key when it comes to baking!
