  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 12 oz. bottle beer (lighter/pumpkin ale preferred)
  • 2 tbsp melted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Generously grease a 9x5 inch loaf baking pan and set that aside while you begin making your batter. 

  2. Begin by mixing the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice, sugar). Whisk them until they are combined. Add the pumpkin puree and mix gently.

  3. Add the beer. Let the foam settle BEFORE you mix it in. Once settled, mix to combine.

  4. The result is a pretty dense and heavy dough. Add to the greased baking pan and spread it out evenly.

  5. Pour the 2 tbsp of melted butter on top evenly.

  6. Place in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

  7. Let rest in the pan for 5 minutes. Gently remove onto a wire cooling rack. Slice when ready and enjoy! I like mine best with butter and a drizzle of honey. Feel free to crumble it in chili or dip it in soup.
