Pumpkin Bread

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is bake. It’s something I started doing with my grandma as a child. There is something heartwarming about heating up the oven on a cold day, which warms up the house. Creating a wonderful smelling home while something good baking in the oven that you can pull out and enjoy. 

You can easily freeze this bread for the holidays, or freeze half a loaf for later. I often pre-slice the pumpkin bread and add it separated with parchment or wax paper to freezer bags to pull out later for breakfasts. Or unexpected guests.

This pumpkin bread recipe still has all the flavors of fall but, isn’t overly spiced with nutmeg and cloves. I have to be honest. I don’t like my pumpkin bread heavily spiced with nutmeg and cloves. We did use pumpkin spice mix and cinnamon, making this nice blend of fall flavors that are sure to please anyone.
