Halloween: Pumpkin Honey Beer Bread Recipe

Pumpkin: Stages of Halloween Pumpkin Being CarvedPumpkin-Honey-beer-bread

Hello! I’m Carrie from A Princess and Her Pirates. I am so, so excited to be here on See Vanessa Craft with you during her fun Halloween series. What is Halloween without pumpkins? I “patiently” wait for the calendar to turn to October so I can start putting pumpkins on our porch, and I can begin baking my favorite pumpkin treats. Nothing is more pleasing to my nose than the aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves….all wrapped up in my favorite treat! Today I am going to share one of my absolute favorite, and easiest bread recipes-Pumpkin Honey Beer Bread. I am positive you will be filling your kitchen with this amazing dish before fall is over!


2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup beer {room temperature is best}
1/4 cup honey
4 large eggs
1 can pumpkin {15 oz}
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Cooking spray


Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray the inside of two 9×5 loaf pans and set aside.

Step 2: With the paddle attachment fitted to your stand mixer, combine the sugar, oil, beer, and honey until mixed well. Add the eggs one at a time, until just blended. At low speed, beat in the pumpkin.


Step 3: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice. Keeping the mixer speed on low, add this combination of dry ingredients until it is JUST blended. Do not over mix.

Step 4: Divide the batter between the two loaf pans. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for about 1 hour. Check the breads at 45 minutes or so. Cover them with foil for the remainder of the baking to prevent burning.

Step 5: Cool the loaves in the pans on a wire wrack for 10 minutes or so, and allow to cool for 30 minutes before slicing.


Are you drooling yet? This pairs perfectly with your favorite coffee or tea, and is an easy bread to make and freeze for later. If you can even stand to not eat it right away! I love it because it is light and airy. With all the fun ales and beers on the market for fall now, this will be a tasty treat for your family to enjoy all fall long!
