Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Updated: Aug 8, 2022


I don't know about you, but 2020 hasn't been my favorite. I will say the excitement for the fall season is putting me in a better mood. It's still August, but I am so ready for fall to be here. One of my favorite things about fall is the smells, and this pumpkin bread will make your entire house smell like fall.

I made this recipe last weekend, and while it was cooling, I had to run an errand real quick. I came back into the house and the smell of pumpkin cinnamon goodness made me feel like something was just right in the world. I think I may commit to making this recipe every weekend until Thanksgiving (too much?). Either way, if you're in a funk, and you're looking forward to fall, I highly recommend making this recipe. It's delicious, it makes 3 loaves, and it is always paired well with coffee. Let me know if you give it a try!
