  • 1 and 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour can substitute with all-purpose
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup Nutella


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease or line a standard 9"x5" loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together the eggs, pumpkin, milk and applesauce. Pour this into the large bowl with the dry ingredients.
  • Gently fold everything together until no dry streaks remain. Do not over mix.
  • Pour half of the mixture into your prepared baking pan.
  • Melt the Nutella in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds.
  • Pour half of the Nutella on top of the batter and gently swirl it in with a knife or spatula.
  • Pour the other half of the batter on top and top with the remaining half of the melted Nutella. Swirl it in with a knife or spatula.
  • Bake in your preheated oven for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (don't worry if melted Nutella comes out - we're mostly worrying about the batter).
  • Allow the bread to cool slightly before slicing and serving.


Leftover bread should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and will keep for several days.
