Olive Oil Pumpkin Bread

Thanksgiving is not just around the corner – it’s tomorrow!  If you’ve been more naughty than nice this year, now is the last chance to turn it around, by whipping up a batch of olive oil pumpkin bread for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving feast.

These charming little pumpkin loafs have the warm spicy flavors of cinnamon, ginger and orange zest, crowned with crunchy pumpkin seeds and jewels of ruby cranberries under a fairy dusting of sugar.  The olive oil, eggs and pumpkin puree give the loaf a wonderfully moist, rich texture.

Best of all, they’re easy to make, and only take 15-20 minutes to bake.  Rather than stuffing our guests with a pumpkin pie after Thanksgiving dinner, we make these olive oil pumpkin loafs for our friends and family to take home.

This pumpkin bread is the perfect way to wake up with loved ones, and share a quiet moment after a long night of revelry.  Warm up for breakfast the next day, serve with a little cinnamon or honey butter, and a steaming hot cup of coffee.

Makes 9 mini loafs

Dry Ingredients

200g (1 1/2 cups) of flour

1 1/2 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1 tsp of ground cinnamon

Wet Ingredients

225g (1 cup) of canned pumpkin puree

210g (1 cup) of olive oil

250g (1 1/3 cups) of sugar

1 tsp of salt

3 eggs

Pinch of orange zest

Pinch of freshly grated ginger


8 oz of frozen cranberries

Extra granulated sugar

Pumpkin Seeds


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl combine dry ingredients and set aside. In another medium bowl, combine wet ingredients.  Sift dry ingredients over the wet ingredients. Whisk until well combined. Spoon mixture into mini loaves and top with 4 to 6 frozen cranberries, pumpkin seeds, and a generous pinch of sugar. Keep the cranberries frozen until you’re ready to top the pumpkin bread, without defrosting the fruit before baking.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
