Recipe Notes

Easy Pumpkin Bread Q & A

How Do You Store Pumpkin Bread?

Once your bread has cooled, wrap in in plastic wrap or store in an airtight container.  You can store the bread at room temperature for up to 5 days.  Alternately, you can store in the fridge for about 1 week.  If the bread has an off smell, or mold - the bread has gone bad and needs to be discarded.

Why Did My Pumpkin Bread Fall in the middle after baking?

Many sweet breads will deflate a bit, but if it's a significant amount, it could be due to undercooking.

Can I Fix undercooked bread?

Yes!  The bread can be salvaged - place back into the over and bake for an additional 10 to 20 minutes.  This should cook the inside.

How Do I Know When My Bread Is Done Baking?

The edges of the bread will begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. You can use the toothpick test for quick bread doneness too. It should come out with just a few moist crumbs clinging to it.
