Pumpkin Dump Bread | Easy for kids to make!

Pumpkin Dump Bread

We have 3 boys in our house, and they eat a. LOT. Not kidding. I am positive many of you can relate and have great stories about how much food your kids can consume. My husband always looks at me like I am crazy when I say, “they ate a WHOLE box of cereal for breakfast.” He wonders why I don’t understand. Deep, deep, deep down inside I *think* I do, but the reality is it still baffles me when a whole box of cereal is gone. daily!

Because of this mighty food consumption, I feel like I meal plan, make a grocery list, grocery shop, and then hit repeat over and over again!… I do my best to keep up with these boys, but it’s NOT easy!

When it turns to the fall season, one of our family favorites is pumpkin dump bread. I have made this recipe for YEARS because it is super easy. The kids can make this one by themselves…All the ingredients literally get dumped in one bowl and then are mixed for 2 minutes. It. is. that. easy! The 9 and 11 year-old made this bread over fall break this past weekend. Typically the only thing I have to help them with is pouring it in the pans because the bowl with the batter is SO heavy, it’s too hard for them to lift it and pour!

One other tip…when the bread comes out of the oven, I let it set in the pans for about 5 minutes and then wrap it while it is still warm in saran wrap. This seems to keep the bread super moist!

  1. I saw your recipe, and got up and made it right away.
    I didn’t get three loafs, so not sure if I did something wrong.
    I made 6 large muffins and one loaf.
    I just took it out of the oven, and ate one of the muffins when it
    was still hot!!!! Soooo delicious. I will be making this again
    and again, and again.

    Thanks again,
