Pumpkin Beer Bread is a soft, sweet pumpkin bread recipe that is the perfect side dish for your holiday table or breakfast cake!


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup beer
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (15- ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour


  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9×13 pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of  your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix the sugar, beer, honey and oil together on medium-low speed until combined. Add in the eggs, pumpkin, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice and continue mixing on medium-low speed until smooth.
  3. Turn mixer to low and add in the flour and mix until just combined. Don’t over-mix.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until set in the middle. If the cake starts to brown on top or around the edges too much, lightly tent the pan with aluminum foil.
  5. When the cake is done make the glaze. Combine the butter, sugar, water, and vanilla into a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir continuously until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Do not bring to a boil.
  6. Poke holes all over the warm cake using a knife and pour the glaze evenly on the cake while still in the pan.
  7. Allow the cake to cool completely before serving.


Store airtight for up to 3 days.
