This is the first recipe I have made using my fabulous new KitchenAid Mixer. How did I ever live without this kitchen necessity? I absolutely love it and this is definitely the best pumpkin bread recipe that I have ever tasted. I used the Dassant Pumpkin Spice Bread Mix along with a few additional ingredients to create a delicious treat for Thanksgiving Day.
Dassant Premium Baking Mixes are very simple to prepare while still giving you a taste as if they were made from scratch. The Pumpkin Spice Bread is a seasonal favorite and perfect for any Fall day. Just add your ingredients, mix, bake and you get the same quality as a home cooked bread. Of course, I added the home-made frosting to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.
You’ll find the recipe at the end of this post. First, I preheated my oven to 350º F. I used a 9 x 5 loaf pan and greased it with cooking spray. Then I combined my eggs, oil, water, and canned pumpkin in my mixer. I added my Dassant Pumpkin Spice Bread Mix and folded together until the batter was smooth.
I poured the batter into my pan and spread it filling the corners and leveling the top. I baked it in the over for 55 minutes until I could stick a toothpick in the center and it came out clean. Allow the bread to sit for approximately 15 to 20 minutes before adding the delicious icing.
To make the icing I used melted butter, canned pumpkin, milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon and confectioner’s sugar. I blended the ingredients in my mixer until smooth. I then poured it over my bread. It was fairly runny when I added it to my bread but it quickly hardens. If your icing is too thick you can add small drops of hot water. I think I added too much but it was still delicious and a nice treat atop the bread loaf.
Be sure to buy your Dassant Mix in store or online!

Thanks for the recipe! I pretty much have all these ingredients on hand right now. I love when that happens! I noticed you don’t have flour listed as an ingredient – was that on purpose or an omission?
The baking mix from Dassant contains flour 🙂

I have been craving pumpkin ever since I was promised a pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving (only thing I asked them to bring after I slaved and cooked everything else, fabulously might I add) and was brought an apple pie from Safeway….oh the dissapointment! I will be making this very soon!
Jennifer Mae Hiles says
That looks delicious! I bet your kitchen aid mixer makes life so much easier when it comes to baking! I’d like to try your frosting recipe too. The only one I know how to make is cookie icing with butter milk and powdered sugar so it’s nice to have a new one!
