From pumpkin spice lattes to pumpkin bread, there’s just something about this autumnal flavor that makes me feel cozy and content. But what do you do when you’ve baked a few too many pumpkin loaves, and you don’t want them to go to waste? The answer is simple: reheat them for maximum deliciousness! But how to reheat pumpkin bread?
You can reheat pumpkin bread in the oven, air fryer, toaster oven, microwave, or on the stove. Just make sure to add some water. The best way to reheat pumpkin bread is by using an oven. This method will ensure that the bread will not be dry and it will be able to have a crispy crust.
Since there are many ways to reheat pumpkin bread, this article deals with the most effective ones. They are quick, easy, and, best of all, they’ll leave your bread tasting just like it was when it first came out of the oven. So read on for my top tips!
How to Reheat Pumpkin Bread in the Oven?
There’s nothing quite like a slice of warm pumpkin bread unless it’s been reheated the wrong way. Then it’s just a mess. When it comes to reheating pumpkin bread, there are a few different methods you can choose from, but the best way to do it is by using the oven.
Preheat your oven to 350°F (or 180°C), and place the bread on a baking sheet. Put it in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until it’s nice and warm.
How to Reheat Pumpkin Bread in Microwave?
If you’re not interested in using the oven, you can also reheat the bread in the microwave. Just place it on a microwave-safe plate and heat it for 30-60 seconds or until it’s hot. Still, be sure to keep an eye on it so that it doesn’t burn.
This usually does the trick, but you should adjust the time as needed depending on how cold the bread is.
How to Reheat Pumpkin Bread in a Toaster Oven or Air Fryer?
Reheating your pumpkin bread in a toaster oven or air fryer will also give you great results. Not only will your bread reheat evenly, but it will also get nice and crispy on the outside.
To reheat in a toaster oven, set the temperature to 350°F (or 180°C) and place the pumpkin bread on the middle rack. Heat for about 10 minutes or until warmed through. If you want your bread to be extra crispy, you can heat it for an additional 3-5 minutes.
To reheat in an air fryer, set the temperature to 350°F (or 180°C) and place the pumpkin bread in the basket. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until warmed through. Again, if you want your bread to be extra crispy, you can cook it for an additional 1-2 minutes.
Additional Reheating Tips
Adding moisture is essential because it will help to re-create that just-baked texture and flavor. I like to use a simple spray bottle filled with water for this. Before you pop your pumpkin bread into the oven or microwave, just spray it with a light spray.
If you’re using the microwave, add a moist paper towel on top of the bread. This will help keep things moist and prevent the bread from drying. Just be sure to remove the paper towel before serving.
Another option is to place your pumpkin bread on a wire rack over a water-filled baking sheet. By doing so, you’ll create steam, which will help keep your bread moist as it reheats. Just be sure to keep a close eye on it so that it doesn’t get too wet.
Tips for Keeping Pumpkin Bread Fresh
It is best to store pumpkin bread in an airtight container at room temperature, where it will stay fresh for up to five days. If you need to keep it for longer, you can store it in the fridge for up to two weeks or in the freezer for up to three months.
