Chunky Pumpkin Apple Bread ~ by Victoria

This is probably our family's all-time favorite sweet bread!
It is soooooo moist and delicious . . .
and fairly nutritious with pumpkin and apples in it!
We also enjoy making it to share with others,
and have often been asked for the recipe!
So, here it is!  Enjoy!
12 ServingsPrep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours + cooling


  • 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (we like things extra flavorful, so we usually add more of these spices!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup chopped peeled tart apples (most often we add more!)
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts (we usually omit these)


In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and cloves. In another large bowl, whisk the pumpkin, water, eggs and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apples and walnuts. Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 325° for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool.
Yield: 1 loaf (12 slices).
