Posted on

This Pumpkin Molasses bread is a must-make dessert for Thanksgiving. You will be impressed. It’s easy to make (who needs anything complicated for Thanksgiving? It’s delicious and tastes exactly like autumn. Molasses adds a rich flavor to pumpkin spice flavors and makes the bread moist and tender. This pumpkin spice bread will make your home smell better than any autumn-flavored candle. 😉

RECIPE UPDATES

This recipe has undergone significant modifications as many of my readers had difficulty getting it to cook. To bake the bread evenly, I reduced the amount of molasses and other moist ingredients to the dry ingredients. It produces a moist, tender crumb with no pockets of unbaked batter.

WHAT KIND OF LOAF PANE SHOULD I USE?

A standard loaf pan measures 8.5×4.5×2.5 inches. My loaf pan was made from metal and heated up quickly in the oven. A ceramic or glass loaf pan can be used, but your bread may need to bake for a longer time.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN THE BREAD IS DONE?

Ovens are different, so make sure to check your bread before baking. There are several reliable methods.

  • The Toothpick Method: Insert a toothpick into the middle of the bread. The bread should bake for longer if the toothpick is covered in batter. The bread is done baking if it has just a few moist crumbs.
  • An Instant Read Thermometer tests the doneness and temperature of quick loaves of bread. You want to set the internal temperature of quick loaves of bread like this Pumpkin Molasses Bread or Banana Bread. This is the temperature at which the batter will turn into a fine crumb.

WHAT KINDS OF MOLASSES CAN I USE?

I used Grandma’s Original Molasses. This is the most common type that you will find in U.S. grocery shops. It can be found in grocery stores near jams, jellies, peanut butter and pancake syrup. It all depends on where you shop. This recipe is not compatible with blackstrap molasses. It has a thicker texture, more intense flavor and can be slightly bitter.

HOW TO SERVE PUMPKIN MOLASSES BROWN

The rich, sweet bread tastes amazing with softened butter drizzled over it. The butter’s creamy texture perfectly complements the warmth of the spices and the sweetness of the sweet molasses. This bread is perfect with a cup of hot coffee. 🙂
