My wife and I had an extra can of pumpkin left over from the holidays and thought, what could we do with it! We LOVE pumpkin bread, but at the time I didn’t want to warm my home. Solution, let’s bake the bread in the crockpot! Let me just say you will NEVER have a more moist bread in your LIFE.
The process of baking in a crockpot is pretty easy. Once you have the batter made for your bread, pour around two cups of water into your crockpot. We are essentially baking the bread in a water bath. Now place the bread into the crockpot, but make sure the water doesn’t go into the bread pan. Next is a very important step, if you don’t do this the bread won’t bake very well. Make sure to place paper towels inside the crockpot, securing them with the crockpot top. This will trap the condensation the crockpot creates, and allow your bread to bake. Try not to open your crockpot until the appropriate time, and just use a knife to see if it is done.

- ½ cup of oil
- ½ cup of sugar
- ½ cup of packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs (beaten)
- 1 15oz can of pumpkin
- 1½ cup of flour (sifted)
- ¼ tsp. of salt
- ½ tsp. of cinnamon
- ½ tsp. of nutmeg
- 1 tsp. of baking soda
- Blend the oil and both of the sugars into a large bowl.
- Then, stir in the beaten eggs and canned pumpkin. Add the remaining dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
- Pour the batter into a greased or oiled bread pan. (I used a canola oil spray that worked just fine.
- Now add two cups of water to your crockpot and place the pan into a crock pot.
- Cover the top of the crockpot with eight-ten paper towels. This is to trap condensation and keep the bread from becoming mushy.
- Place the crock pot lid on top of the crockpot (I tried to make sure the paper towels were trapped around the lid so they didn’t slip) and bake on high 2½ to 3 hours.
