  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (see Note)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 4 x 8 inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Cut a 12 x 8 inch piece of parchment paper, spray lightly and lay it into the pan with ends extending over the sides.

  2. Place flour, cinnamon, salt, soda, baking powder and spices into a medium bowl and stir with a whisk to combine.

  3. In another bowl, combine sugar, yogurt, egg whites and pumpkin. Whisk well, then stir in the dry ingredients until they are well combined.

  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 60 minutes. Test by inserting a toothpick into the center and down to the bottom it should come out clean if the loaf is done. You may need to extend bake time by 5-10 more minutes.

  5. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack for 5 minutes, then lift the loaf from the pan using the parchment paper edges and continue to cool completely on the wire rack before slicing.

Could you substitute sweet potato for the pumpkin?

We haven't tested it, but I don't see why not. I think that would be a fun and delicious experiment. If you try it, would you mind commenting here and letting me know how it turned out? Thanks! :)

I want to try this recipe but it doesn't state how many egg whites to use. How many egg whites do I need?

I would definitely make this pound cake again!

Oh, this is a good pumpkin pound cake. The pumpkin flavor is good - not overpowering. The pound cake is as it should be - dense, moist and stands up very well for the pumpkin flavor. Like this recipe!

Pumpkin treats are one of my favorite things about fall, and this pound cake fit right in. Dense, moist, not too sweet, and full of pumpkin flavor, this poundcake was everything I wanted it to be!

I love pumpkin anything, but this is one of my favorites! This pound cake was dense and moist - just the way I like it.

This was delicious! It wasn't too heavy for a pound cake, and it was the perfect breakfast snack. I liked it way better than the actual Starbucks Pumpkin Loaf!

This is definitely better than Starbucks' pumpkin loaf!

This was so moist and delicious! I couldn't believe it tasted so much like Starbucks' version!

This was so soft and moist - so much better that the original version from Starbucks! This is a perfect fall treat.

I love all things pumpkin and this recipe was delicious - moist and perfect for fall.
