Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Pumpkin…’tis the season…Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Cake, Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin Cupcakes…and Pumpkin Bread!

I’m one of those strange people that don’t like Pumpkin Pie, but I love all the other baked goods, oh and Pumpkin Chai Tea Latte! This Pumpkin Bread is an absolutely favorite of mine and I look forward to it every Fall.

I’m not sure if you noticed, or saw me chatting about my new camera on Facebook, but I was able to purchase my first Canon DSLR a couple months ago. Doug and I have been learning the new settings and what works best. Sometimes when we take photos to share, we struggle with getting a few good ones, and other times, like the Pumpkin Bread, almost every photo was good. So bear with me…I have a few to share.

We love this Pumpkin Bread filled with nuts, but you can certainly leave them out too.

Wrap the Pumpkin Bread, or any bread, in a coffee filter and tie with a pretty ribbon for a very thoughtful and of course, budget friendly gift.

YUM! Now I need to go bake some more bread, because this is making me crave Pumpkin Bread!
