Pumpkin season and I am starting it off with a new recipe. We all know my love for anything pumpkin and my pumpkin pie recipe is SO good.

I wanted to try and recreate the Starbucks pumpkin loaf but with a twist. I completely winged this recipe and it is honestly the best tasting pumpkin spice loaf you will ever taste.

I added a pumpkin pecan icing drizzle on top too and it didn’t last two days in this house :)


2 eggs 

100g soft butter

1 teaspoon ginger

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon cinnamon powder 

165g light brown sugar

150g self raising flour 

225g Pumpkin - I roasted a whole pumpkin and had tons of pumpkin for different recipes but you can just pick up a tin of pumpkin purée :)


60g icing sugar

Syrup of your choice. I used the sugar free pumpkin pecan waffle syrup you can get from TK Maxx 


Preheat your oven 180C / gas mark 4

Mix your sugar and butter until it becomes a paste. Add in your eggs , mix and then add your dry ingredient bit by bit mixing each part each time.

Now add your pumpkin and give it all a good stir.

Line your loaf tin and give it a spray or a wipe with some butter and then add your mixture and bake for 50 minutes on 180C/ gas mark 4 .

Leave it to cool for a while then add your icing drizzle. 

I got 7 good slices from one loaf :)

Let me know if you recreate this recipe, I’d love to know what you think.


  1. I do love a good spice loaf. This is perfect for the holiday.

  2. Considering you winged the recipe it looks really good. I don't have pumpkin spiced things very often, but it's such a nice Autumnal taste x

  3. This pumpkin spice loaf looks deciduous. I can't wait to try it, appetizersandentrees
