Why Does My Pumpkin Bread Not Rise

Expired baking powder or baking soda, or adding too much batter to the pan.

How Do You Know When Pumpkin Bread Is Done

Check that your bread puffed up and has a crack on top, as this is a sign that it has cooked all the way through.

Insert a toothpick where the crack appears across the top in a few spots to check for doneness.

The bread is done when the inserted toothpick pulled out appears clean. However, there should be a few moist crumbs attached to the toothpick, but not batter.

If the toothpick is not clean bake the pumpkin bread for 5-10 minutes longer and recheck.

How Long Should Bread Cool Before Cutting

Allow bread to cool until it's just barely warm or all the way before cutting to complete the cooking process.

Bread baked in a loaf pan can take as long as 1 hour.

How Do You Get Pumpkin Bread Out Of A Pan

Can I Leave Pumpkin Bread Out Overnight

To prevent drying out, cover your pumpkin bread with plastic wrap or foil. Pumpkin bread will last 1 to 2 days at normal room temperature.

Should It Be Refrigerated

No it's not necessary. Pumpkin bread stores well at room temperature due to the oil and pumpkin. It does not need to be refrigerated unless you want it to last an entire week.

Can I Freeze

Yes. Allow the bread to cool completely on a wire wrack.

Once bread is cool, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, 2 layers, to prevent freezer burn.

You may freeze pumpkin bread for up to three months.
