It seems that the pumpkin and squash marathon continues. While I was enjoying my pumpkin pie pancakes I thought that a pumpkin bread would also be a good idea. It started off as a pretty basic pumpkin bread but then I thought that it would be nice if I added some dried cranberries. The next thing I knew I was also adding some toasted pecans and white chocolate chips. The fully loaded pumpkin bread turned out really well. It was nice and light and moist and good. The pumpkin flavour came through well and the spices finished it off with an amazing aroma. Unfortunately the white chocolate chips seem to have melted into the bread. Next time I will have to use chucks of white chocolate bar instead. For even more pumpkiny goodness I spread some pumpkin butter on a slice of the pumpkin bread. I am looking forward to breakfasts this week!

This pumpkin bread is perfect for my dairy-free diet! It looks so tasty, and maybe sub dark chocolate chips for the white. Another great recipe Kevin!
The Peanut Butter Boy says
This sounds wonderful and healthy. I’m not a big white chocolate fan anymore but it somehow sounds incredible with this bread.
Joie de vivre says
Mmmm…I think that would be good with plain butter too.
I totally love how this bread looks. Beautiful texture and something I am craving for right now!

The pumpkin bread looks delicious, Yummy !!
Mrs Ergül says
And I can only say WOW 😉
Pumpkin butter on pumpkin bread? All that’s missing are crunchy pepitas on top, hee hee 🙂 Looks so deliciously moist– and the white choc chips are a great touch!
That looks so good! I love how dark and golden your loaf turned out, well obviously, it’s pumpkin…haha. What kind of pan do you use?
Beautiful hue. See that u have used all the seasonal ingredients.
I just made a cranberry bread but without the pumpkin. Loved the use of white choc.
Looks deliciously moist and what a perfect way to serve this tasty bread? Pumpkin butter, of course!
Peter M says
This takes banana bread to a whole new level with pumpkin as the star….you’re becoming quite adept at these quick breads.
Totally loving this! Great recipe!

Lori Lynn says
Looks moist and delicious!
Really like your new lay-out Kevin.
Marvelous bread, Kevin!!
I love pumpkin bread, and the addition of toasted pecans and cranberries has me drooling 🙂
If you have them in your area, try using cinnamon chips instead of white chocolate to give it a little spice. Who knows, it just might work.
I’ve jumped on the pumpkin bandwagon too. Just made pumpkin pancakes…your bread looks great with the dried cranberries…..
I love pumpkin bread, yours looks really good.
what a combo!!! 🙂
Pumpkin butter on pumpkin bread. I’m in love.
Cathy - wheresmydamnanswer says
That looks so great what a wonderful combination.. love the white chocolate chips in this as well!!
Gee, I ought to try putting some cranberries in my squash bread, which tastes just like pumpkin bread. Yours is beautiful!
We had both had cranberries on our mind. Tis the season! Your bread looks delicious.
This is a gorgeous pumpkin bread and great recipe Kevin! I like the addition of two flours and just look at those spices ~ wonderful..
What a great combination of flavors! Everything that goes well with pumpkin is right here!
oh! the white chocolate is lovely!
I want a slice and then probably the whole loaf! Nice job on this one!
That looks delish!
Kristy - Where's My Damn Answer says
I used to make zucchini bread each year and haven’t done it in forever. I might have to do pumpkin bread AND zucchini bread this year … just because 😀
Looks amazing. I may have to try this – I think it would be right up Grumpy’s alley!
Looks delicious, Kevin. I just made some pumpkin raisin pecan muffins myself! With the small amount of oil in this recipe, it’s healthy too!
Ok, this is freaky – I just an almost identical post – to be published in the next day or so for Pumpkin Bread with dates and toasted pecans. We have to stop meeting like this.
Diana Evans says
Hi Kevin…looks very yummy and so perfect for the weather…I will take a slice with a nice latter….extra cinnamon please…
The cranberries and pecans sound like a real nice addition to a basic pumpkin recipe.
You really like pumpkins don’t you!!! Looks fab, like the addition of the cranberries
Yum! I love regular chocolate chips in pumpkin bread – never thought to use white chocolate chips!
Thanks for the recipe!
Looks wonderful and yes the pumpkin butter topper simply took it over the top. YUMMO!!
Oh, what a lovely adaptation to “regular” pumpkin bread! It never occurred to me to add white chocolate. It sounds really delicious!
Like I always say, “if you add chocolate, it’ll only make it better!” Your pumpkin bread looks fantastic!
Steph: I used a 9×5 inch loaf pan made by Chicago Metallic that is described as “heavy-weight aluminized steel”.
Lisa magicsprinkles says
Love the texture and colors!
What a great idea to spread some of your lovely pumpkin butter on it, yum.
Great combination! So fall(ish) hehe
oh wow, so tasty and decadent 😉
yum! what an amazing bread to enjoy during this chilly winter months. i am especially loving the cranberry and white chocolate combination!
That looks so fantastic – I can almost smell the delicious pumpkin from here!
I love how you spread a little pumpkin butter on top of the bread as well – what a good idea!
Cooking and the City says
Oh my goodness Kevin! this sounds fabulous 🙂
Great combination of flavors. I will have to give this a try.
Okusama wa Japonesa says
Have you try this recipe using orange juice? I made mine with orange juice in place of yogurt the other day. It added a bit of citrus flavor (yet doesn’t overpower pumpkin flavor) and was very moist and good. If you haven’t, it’s worth a try!
What a yummy variation on pumpkin bread!
Caroline Brouwer says
As a regular follower from your blog I spotted this recipe. It looked very good so I made it: it was delicious! I would say it is more a cake than a bread; we take a slice of it with a cup of coffee.
Thanks for all your nice recipes!
Best regards from Holland.
