Whatcha Making Wednesdays..... Mini Pumpkin Bread

Welcome to Whatcha Making Wednesday!!! This is my first attempt at a weekly hopefully this works... Anyway... we have been studying fall (i.e. apples, leaves and pumpkins)... so my K4 class made Mini Pumpkin Bread Loaves.... so cute... and tasty!

Ryleigh stirring the pumpkin, spices and sugar....Adding in the egg and oil....
Adding in the Flour... I color coded all the bowls for easier group instruction...and also to eliminate fighting over certain colors...The finished to my "regular" sized loaf of bread for size comparison ...
Ryleigh getting ready to cut a slice of her bread....the girls loved being able to use their "little" knifes to cut their "little" breads...
  • 3 cups canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 cups white sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin, oil, sugar, and eggs. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice; stir into the pumpkin mixture until well blended. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. The top of the loaf should spring back
* When having the girls make this, I divided the recipe in 1/3... and then divided 1/3 by 3.... for the mini pans... and then baked for 25 min *

** I found this recipe on and then altered it slightly**
