Moist, Easy Pumpkin Bread

This time of year I am always looking for easy pumpkin recipes and new ways to use canned pumpkin. Pumpkin bread is usually the first pumpkin recipe that I make. I absolutely LOVE this recipe and I think you will too! It is super easy & quick.

It bakes up a pumpkin bread that is ridiculously moist and those warm spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice & ginger combined with pumpkin…..HEAVEN!!
I have never met anyone who doesn’t like this bread, even pumpkin haters have requested this recipe from me. It verges on the line of being a really soft bread or a dense cake. It goes great with cool whip and ice cream. I even like it in the morning with some coffee or tea.
This homemade pumpkin bread makes a great gift as well so if you are going over someone’s house for the holidays don’t show up empty-handed, TAKE THIS BREAD!! They will love you for it!
