  • 5"x9" loaf pan


Dry Ingredients

  • cups all-purpose flour 11.7 ounces/331.2 grams
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar 6.3 ounces/178 grams
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree 1 can/425 grams
  • ½ cup melted butter 113 grams
  • cup maple syrup 78.9 ml
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest

Maple Glaze

  • ½ cup powdered sugar 1.5 ounces/43 grams
  • ¼ cup maple syrup 2 ounces/59.14 ml


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease and flour loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients- 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder, 1½ teaspoon cinnamon, ¾ teaspoon baking soda, ½ teaspoon nutmeg, ¼ teaspoon ginger, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt. It is best to use a whisk to aerate the flour.
  • In a smaller bowl, combine all wet ingredients - 1 can pumpkin puree, ½ cup melted butter, ⅓ cup maple syrup, 2 eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon orange zest.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and combine with a spatula. Mix just until all dry ingredients have been incorporated.
  • Spoon into the prepared loaf pan, smoothing the top surface.
  • Place on a rack in the middle of the oven.
  • Bake for 1 ½ hours. After 1 ¼ hours, use a skewer to test the doneness of the bread. Insert the skewer in the middle of the bread. If it is clean, the bread is done. If there is batter stuck to the skewer, place the loaf pan back in the oven for the remaining 15 minutes.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and let cool for approximately 30 minutes. Turn the pan upside down and gently, let the bread slide out of the pan. Place on a rack to continue cooling. The bread is still a little fragile because it is still warm.

Maple Glaze

  • While the bread is cooling, prepare the glaze. Mix the powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. The glaze should be thin enough to drizzle down the sides of the loaf. Add more of the remaining 2 tablespoons to obtain the correct consistency, if needed.
