Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Simple Pumpkin Spice Mini-Loaves

Update: Click here to see the toddler and I make these on video!

You will not believe how easy these are. I mean SUPER easy. Not only easy but everyone seems to like them! I’ve given them as gifts, brought them to parties and froze them for later use. This is, by far, my favorite “in a pinch” holiday dessert.

OH! and a QUOTE from the Husband, “Ohhhh that’s the stuff!” Needless to say, the toddler is a fan too! Simple Pumpkin Spice Mini-Loaves

Non-stick cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees

Whisk the egg whites and pumpkin. Stir in the cake mix and blend until just moistened.

Spray 4 mini-loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray. Evenly distribute the cake batter into the pans, just about half way.

Sprinkle the tops with quick oats and bake for about 40 minutes.

As for the serving and nutritional information, according to the cake mix package there are 12 servings. That would be 3 servings per loaf. In my opinion, you can count 2 slices per serving and easily serve 4 people per loaf (8 slices). So I’m providing nutritional information for 16 servings. That’s 4 servings per loaf. (I hope that makes sense, I almost confused myself!)

    I tried something similar for Thanksgiving this year, but I also added cranberries into the mix. Reply

    This recipe was absolutely delicious!!! I will recommend it to everyone that I know! I love, love, love pumpkin spice bread and this recipe is perfect! I did not have the mini muffin pans, so I used a 9 X 12 pan and cooked it at 350 for 30 minutes and it was very moist and cooked just like a cake. Thank you soooo much Roni for this wonderful recipe. I am just starting WW's and needed something that did not taste like I was on a diet and this recipe was very delicious! Reply

    These are sooo good! I added 1 shredded apple (peeled) to the mix and made muffins instead of the mini loaves. My 3 year old loves them!!! Thank you for all of your great recipes!!! Reply

    Roni, this may be in your blog somewhere, but I could not find it. I am looking for suggestions for "snacks" to go in my purse for when I am out and about during the day and start to FADE. I can take bagged almonds, etc. but thought I would check and see if you or your "public" have any suggestion. Something that can just go in the purse or car, no refrigeration needed. And in our Texas heat, they can't stay in the car for very long. Was also looking for something with protein, not just a sweet thing. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks. Carolyn Reply

    Carolyn - I have the perfect post for you.. There are some great ideas in the comments. Hope that helps! Reply

    These are pretty tasty. I'm a whole-wheat muffin fan myself so I would prefer those over these, but these are definately a crowd pleaser and good for those who don't care for the whole-wheat taste. And it was ridiculous how simple it was to make....really, 3 ingredients and stir. Reply

    The hubby loves that he is eating cake for breakfast and losing weight! :) Reply

    KC - I agree, I'd much rather whole grain, but in a pinch for a party this can't be beat! Thanks for the comment! Reply

    These are fabulous! I served them at a gathering of friends tonight and everyone loved them. Thanks Roni! Reply

    This was wonderful, Roni! I took it to work & everyone thought I was some great cook. LOL I'll definitely be making this for my family at Christmas. The only problem is that I could eat all of it in one sitting if I was in a weak moment. Reply

    glad you liked them and DITTO!! I really have to watch myself. :) Reply

    does this amount of batter fit into a 9 x 13 pan? Reply


    October 19, 2009

    yeah.. you should fine! let me know how it turns out! Reply

    Do you think it woudld work if I made a spice cake mix at home? I can't have boxed cake mixes but would love to make this if I could substitute "safe for me" ingredients. It would also be a way to get whole wheat flour into the bread instead of white flour. Reply

      You might be able to modify this.. to use pumpkin instead of banana. Just a thought!

    I made these tonight. Super easy and delicious. I am freezing most of it as they are too good to keep around. I will do them again and add shredded apple as suggested in one post. Thank you for all of your yummy recipes. They have helped me so much with my weight loss, making cooking fun and exciting again. Reply
