Etikora Recipes: The Best Vegan Pumpkin Bread


Halloween is right around the corner, and as everyone knows, Autumn is the best time to indulge in warm, pumpkin-spiced treats to capture the essence of the season. This Vegan Pumpkin Bread recipe does just that, and it's so easy to make.

Whether enjoyed with a cup of tea on a rainy afternoon or as a dessert after Sunday dinner, this bread will become a fall favourite.

Ingredients For the Vegan Pumpkin Bread:

1 Can (400g) of pumpkin puree

200g self-raising flour

150g light brown sugar

100 ml unsweetened almond milk (or any plant-based milk)

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cloves

Optional Add-Ins:

50g chopped nuts

50g raisins or sultanas



Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a 9x5-inch (23x13 cm) loaf pan with

parchment paper.


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the self-raising flour and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves). Mix them together thoroughly.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the canned pumpkin puree, light brown sugar, and unsweetened almond milk until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  3. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until you have a smooth batter. Don't overmix; just mix until everything is incorporated. If you're adding nuts and raisins, gently fold them into the batter at this stage.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, smoothing the top evenly.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. The baking time may vary slightly, so keep an eye on it as it approaches 40 minutes.
  6. Once the Vegan Pumpkin Bread is done, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Slice your Vegan Pumpkin Bread and enjoy it as a delightful autumn treat - it's perfect as is, or with a spread of vegan butter.

This simple recipe captures the flavours of autumn, and its minimal ingredients make it an ideal choice for a quick, delicious treat.
