Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread

Great for dessert, brunch or as a snack. An autumn classic made with Bigelow Pumpkin Spice Tea.

One 9" x 4" loaf


  • ½ cup milk
  • 8 Bigelow® Pumpkin Spice Tea Bags*
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick), at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup raisins (optional) or ½ cup of chopped walnuts** (optional)
Orange & Spice Quick Bread: Substitute 8 Bigelow Orange & Spice Herbal tea bags and add 2 teaspoons of orange zest to the finished batter. If desired, sprinkle the top of the loaf with poppy seeds before baking. Bake as directed.
Ginger Snappish Quick Bread: Substitute 8 Bigelow® Ginger Snappish Herbal tea bags plus add 2 tablespoons of chopped crystallized ginger to the top of the loaf before baking. Bake as directed.


Combine milk and tea bags in a small saucepan. Heat over medium/low heat until bubbles form around the edge, stirring occasionally (DO NOT BOIL). Remove from heat and let cool (15-20 minutes): remove tea bags, squeezing out liquid. Set aside. Preheat oven to 325º F. Grease 9"" x 4"" loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs and mix until smooth. Alternate adding tea-infused milk and flour mixture, stir after each addition. If you choose, add raisins and stir to combine. Pour batter into loaf pan. Bake 45-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack before removing from pan.

*Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread with Walnuts: Substitute for the raisins.
