Easy Pumpkin Bread

A recipe that calls for only two ingredients is always a winner in my book. On top of that, this bread is extremely moist, perfectly pumpkinny and it’s so dang delicious that you’ll likely eat the whole loaf in one day!

Okay, so on to the ingredients:

1 Can of Pure Pumpkin + 1 Box Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix = Easiest Pumpkin Bread EVER

Easy {2 Ingredient} Pumpkin Bread


1 Can Pure Pumpkin

1 Box Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix 


Combine cake mix with pumpkin in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly {batter will be VERY thick}. Pour into baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Refer to cake-mix box for pan size and approximate bake time. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm with {or without} butter.

    My mom picked up the ingredients for this and left them at my house so I made muffins this weekend. I thought they were a little gummy but Blaire is gobbling them up! I'll call it a win! 🙂

    I volunteered to bring pumpkin bread for Bosses' Day on Wednesday and I am now thinking I'm going to scrap my usual somewhat labor-intensive recipe and give this one a try. What a great idea!!

    You can also use that recipe but add chocolate chips and make pumpkin cookies!

    Your bread looks gorgeous! Nicely captured. I then went on to look at the ingredients of the cake mix but was dismayed to see it's full of chemicals and Yellow 5 Lake. That's a shame.

    This was the absolute best pumpkin bread I ever ate – and the first I ever made! I even added raisins and sprinkled jimmies on top. Fantastic!!!

    I MAKE THIS ALL THE TIME! My grandma showed me it years ago. I always add 1 egg, 2 tbsp butter, a little sugar, some extra spice, and vanilla (you can never have enough vanilla!) The egg makes it extra fluffy. LOVE IT! <3

    Love making this but I always have to bake it longer because it never bakes fully after 40 min for me. Otherwise its Soooo good!

    Do you mix the dry cake mix with the pumpkin and bake? Or the prepared cake mix as indicated on the box then add pumpkin?

    So it's just the cake mix and add the Pumpkin puree or do you mix the cake mix as shown on the box then add the Pumpkin puree
