Vegan Pumpkin Loaf // Recipe

The same day I made the apple pie, I also did some other baking. Among which this pumpkin loaf with pumpkin spice frosting.

For this recipe, you can do as I did: buy a pumpkin and regret everything once you start the entire process of dismantling the damn thing. Or you just buy a can of pumpkin puree.

If you do decide to make this completely from scratch, this is how you make your own pumpkin puree:

  1. Cut the pumpkin in half
  2. Remove all seeds (horrible job, do not recommend. If you have kids, let them do it.)
  3. Place pumpkin halves in the oven for around 60 minutes (or until soft) at 180°C.


For the cake:

  • 350 grams of pumpkin puree
  • 250 grams flour
  • 200 grams brown sugar
  • 100 grams sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (or more, whatever.)
  • 4 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice (mix cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, ground cloves and all-spice!)
  • 60 ml olive oil

For the frosting:

  • 300 grams of icing sugar
  • 75 grams of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Pumpkin pie spice (mix cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, ground cloves and all-spice!)
  • 2 tablespoons of soya milk

How to make it

Mix all the ingredients together and bake in the oven for around 40 minutes at 180°C.

Wait for the loaf to cool before putting on the frosting. Decorate with pecans.

    I love everything with pumpkin. I prefer to buy canned pumpkin, it tastes almost the same without the hassle.

    Oh this is something that I must try myself since I am vegan. Looks very delicious and the recipe seems simple enough. I will definitely try it out.
