Cooking Time:3-4 hours
Ingredients1/2 c. oil
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs (beaten)
15 oz. pumpkin, canned
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. walnuts (chopped)
1 1/2 c. flour

One thing I love about Fall is that it’s pumpkin time! Crock Pot Pumpkin Bread is no exception – it’s a favorite for snacking or even a quick breakfast on the go. Serve this warm with butter, apple butter, or even a light cream cheese spread. (I like to whip equal parts of cream cheese and sugar to make a light and sweet spread.)
- Combine oil and both sugars in a large bowl.
- Whisk in eggs and pumpkin.
- Add remaining ingredients and stir (do not over mix).
- Pour batter in a greased loaf pan that will fit inside a large oval slow cooker.
- Cover and Crock on High for 3 to 4 hours.

Can you sub almond flour for regular flour in this recipe?
Marcie I have not made it that way, but I would think you will get the same result, but it will be healthier! Happy Crocking!
You can use almond flour, but you would need to add some agent to make it rise…. Xanthan Gum would be the best.
Do you have to put any water in the crockpot?
No water needed… I also make banana bread the same way, see recipe on my website! Happy Crocking!
I still have the older more upright crock pot. Is there a good way to cook this in that style? Or if I had to break down and use the oven, would 350 for less than an hour probably make sense? I so want to try this…
Rhonda it really does take the oval shaped crock pot for the loaf pan to fit inside. If you have to use the oven, I believe the best way is to have to watch it, as I am not sure how long you would bake it. Hope this helps???
Why put the pan in the crockpot instead of the oven??
Lisa it is definitely up to you but the crock pot makes it easy as you do not have to watch it, and also the bread will be moist.
Can you use fresh pumpkin instead of canned? I live in Australia and I have never seen canned pumpkin. Or how do you can pumpkin?
Ann you can use fresh pumpkin… most likely it will be a healthier bread!
I have read where you can sub applesauce for oil….has anyone tried that?
I always substitute applesauce for oil. Nobody can ever taste the difference and my bread/cupcakes/cakes are always more moist!
Have never heard of baking bread in a loaf pan in the crockpot. Does the loaf pan touch the bottom of the crock pot or does the “lip” of the loaf pan rest on the top of the crock pot and then the crock lid goes on?
Guess I am not seeing how this works. Thanks!
Walter, the loaf pan or bread pan just sits in the oval crock pot, round crock pots do not work. There is no lid to the loaf pan/bread pan, just the lid to the crock pot. Hope this helps! Happy Crocking!
Would it be better to use a glass or metal loaf pan?
Becky I have used both, but tend to use my glass one more, so whatever you prefer… Happy Crocking!
I do not have an oval crockpot…wonder if you could use a 16oz coffee can in a round crock pot…it fits 🙂
Sounds like you have the perfect solution… Happy Crocking!

Hi, I would like to know how much cooked Pumpkin do I use as I live in Australia & have never heard of canned Pumpkin. Thanks Narelle.
Hi – you will need 15 oz. of pureed pumpkin. If you don’t have access to canned pumpkin, you can use this recipe I found for making your own. Happy Crocking! http://bit.ly/17a1gHJ
Narelle the can is 15 ounces, so I would use about 2 cups. Hope this helps and Happy Crocking!
Just curious, has anyone ever tried
it with no loaf pan, just directly in the crockpot. Just thought I would ask, too chicken to try it.
Tina I have not made it without the loaf pan, I believe it may get hard on the bottom if put directly on the crock pot. Thanks for the question. Happy Crocking!
what size crock pot do you use
I use my 6 quart slow cooker for this recipe Betty! Enjoy!
what if you dont have an oval crockpot?
If you have a round dish that will fit in your slow cooker, it will still work! Just so much easier in an oval one! Maybe you should add one to your Christmas List! 🙂 Ask for a programmable one while you are at it! Happy Crocking Jamie!
If there is no water in the slow cooker how will it raise?
Shirley since it is in a separate bowl, the heat is actually cooking the bread, but the baking soda in the recipe will make it rise. Enjoy and Happy Crocking!
Awesome! Any tip for the best method/sign to ensure it’s fully ‘baked’ but NOT overdone, since it’s a 3-4 hour range? Do I just go by the appearance of the top of the loaf, as seen through the crockpot’s glass lid?
Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge! 🙂
Jessica is will pull away from the side just like if you were baking in the oven. Enjoy and Happy Crocking! 🙂
use the low setting, i used high for only 3 hrs and I burned the sides. but its tasty.
Sorry Susie … but you know it is a great recipe! Glad you enjoyed it!
