Happy Fall!!! My favorite season has finally arrived!! What better way to usher in the season than with this easy, moist and fluffy pumpkin bread recipe!
Pumpkin bread just reminds me so much of autumn, probably because that’s the only time I make it. I love how it leaves my kitchen smelling all heavenly, one of my favorite scents. If only I could find a decent pumpkin bread candle. Every one I’ve smelled just had a gross artificial smell to it. So let me know if you come across a decent one.
I’ve posted this pumpkin bread recipe a few years ago on my blog but figured it was time to create a video to go along with it. It’s one of my favorite sweet breads to make and Isaac just loves this stuff! He’d eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I’d let him.
This pumpkin bread recipe is pretty simple to make and it bakes up so beautiful! It has that perfect warm cinnamony-pumpkin flavor and stay moist for days (not that it will last that long) If you’re going to be doing a lot of holiday baking gift-giving definitely add this bread to the list. And even better, it just seems to get better as the days go by.
