We’ve always been huge fans of bread. It doesn’t matter the type because Kim and I aren’t picky.

It has all the flavors of Fall with a sourdough twist. Cinnamon, pumpkin, vanilla, and nutmeg just to name a few.

The article contains a custom recipe and it will help get you comfortable with this style of baking.
To our veteran readers, how about we get started making some bread?
How to make sourdough pumpkin bread from scratch?
First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. and grease a 9×5-inch aluminum loaf pan.
After that, grab a large mixing bowl and all the ingredients. Because, this one is pretty much dump and mix.
Next, combine all the ingredients in the bowl. That’s right, pour it all in at once.
I recommend using a hand mixer or wire whisk to blend everything together.
Then, transfer the bread batter to the prepared pan.
Additionally, it wouldn’t hurt the place the loaf pan onto a sheet pan. Just case the batter overflows.
Afterward, place the bread into the oven to bake for 15-minutes. At that point, reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F.
Let the sourdough pumpkin bread bake for another 45-minutes at the reduced temperature.
Last, when it’s done, remove it from the oven and place it on your stove-top.
Let it cool for about 5-minutes before removing the loaf from the pan.
Transfer the baked bread to a cooling rack and let it cool for another for another 30-45 minutes before slicing.
That’s it, your sourdough pumpkin bread recipe is done! Kim and I hope you enjoy it 🙂

- If you use a glass loaf pan instead of a metal one, then preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and reduce it to 325 degrees F. 15-minutes into the baking process.
- Don’t forget to use an aluminum foil tent over the top of the pan if your bread starts to brown too quickly.
- Spices can always be adjusted to taste (reduce the cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, etc.). However, flours and other baking components should not be adjusted or substituted. In other words, almond flour is NOT a good substitution for all-purpose flour in this recipe.
