One of the best things about fall baking is that there are so many delicious, seasonal recipes to try.
Pumpkin bread is a popular choice for this time of year, but what if you’re egg-free?
What should you use to substitute eggs in your pumpkin bread recipe?
Let’s take a look at the solution in this post, shall we?
Egg substitute for pumpkin bread
In my experience, pumpkin puree is the best substitute to replace eggs in pumpkin bread.
When you make pumpkin purée, it can have too much water. Put the purée through a cheesecloth to remove the extra water. If there’s too much water then your cake might be wet or gummy and take a long time to dry out.
You can use that pumpkin water for other recipes like for making smoothies. If you boil it, you can make a thick syrup to use in your pumpkin purée. This way, nothing is wasted!
This pumpkin loaf cake is made with oil, which means you can mix the batter in a bowl quickly with a whisk or spoon. You don’t need to use the mixing method that requires creaming butter and sugar.
Why did my pumpkin bread come out dense?
The ones that came out dense may not be cooked enough.
The ingredients also make the difference, as well as the temperature and baking time.
How do you keep pumpkin bread moist?
To keep it moist, you should let it rest before removing it from the pan. Then wrap it in foil while still warm.
What goes well with pumpkin bread?
Well, there are a lot of things. For instance, it goes well with Nutella.
It also goes well with cream cheese or cinnamon cream cheese.
You can also put butter on top of the bread or honey because it tastes good too, and people sometimes put apple butter on top of their bread and that is really good too!
Why is my pumpkin bread raw in the middle?
If you take the bread out of the oven too early, it will be raw in the middle.
If you leave it in for too long, it will get hard and not taste so good.
The recipe for this bread has oil which makes it moist, but remember not to keep baking until all the way done.
Does homemade pumpkin bread need to be refrigerated?

Make sure it is completely cooled and store it in a cool, dry place for up to 4 days.
What can I use instead of vegetable oil in pumpkin bread?
You can replace the vegetable oil with other liquids such as applesauce, banana, and pumpkin.
You can also use butter or margarine. (source)

Why is my pumpkin bread not rising?
When you want to bake it, the batter should not fill the pan more than 3/4 full.
If you made a recipe that was expired or had too much batter in it, then the bread might not rise.

They need to cook for an hour before you take them out of the oven. You can use a skewer or knife to make sure it is cooked through, too.

A way to tell if your bread is bad or spoiled is to smell it and see the color.
Throw away any that has an odd smell or color. If mold appears, you should throw it away. (source)
How do I know if my pumpkin bread is done?
You can put a toothpick in the middle. When the toothpick comes out clean, then it is done and ready to eat. If not, bake for 5-10 minutes more and check again.
