Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin is everywhere! And since today happens to be my birthday (another year older! WISER! ) I thought I would share a Pumpkin Bread recipe I made recently. If you haven’t already learned pumpkin is one my favs! Prove it you say?  Well when I was younger my Mom let us pick out a birthday dinner meal she would cook us, along with whatever cake we wanted. I ALWAYS picked pumpkin pie. Hands down it was my favorite “cake” out there!

Not only is it part of my birthday celebration, in my pantry, mixer and oven..it’s everywhere on Pinterest–as a beer cooler (great idea, right?)

or even as a flower pot.

It’s also on a lot of doorsteps and used as decoration around people’s houses (as in yesterday’s post which had these chalk painted pumpkins) that I found on the website Perfectly Imperfect. Love!

Pumpkins are great to look at and decorate with (especially when they are colorful like these).….but I am more of a fan of them for cooking! Yum.

I love pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin cookies, roasted pumpkin seeds and, of course, pumpkin bread. Really, the list goes on and on.  Starbucks has pumpkin bread that I love and has inspired me to make my own each year. It is easy and a great thing to bring to a party, thanksgiving or just eat at your leisure.

Pumpkin Bread - YUM!

Yum!

Pumpkin Spice Latte - A Cedar Spoon

[…] love to sit down in the afternoon with a cup of pumpkin spice latte and a slice of this Pumpkin Bread. Unfortunately this year fall has been shorter than usual. We went from the hot summer temperatures […]

Wow! This bread is amazing. I should have made it long before now. Served it with ham and beans today and everyone loved it. I used 2T of melted butter in the batter and put 2T on top. Didn't have any trouble with it running over. Also used a bit less sugar. My loaf was done in about 40 minutes. Can't wait to make it again!

Hi Julia, I saw this recipe and the picture - it looked so good that I baked it this morning. So glad I did. Just the right touch of sweetness and moistness. Such an awesome pumpkin bread. Thank you for the recipe. My house smell so good too!

Hello Julia,

I just came across your website this morning and I'm looking forward to making some of your recipes later today! I'm just wondering, in the Pumpkin Bread recipe, 1 cup of sugar is listed twice. Is this a typo? Also, I'd like to make this recipe for my 2 year old and 10 month old and am thinking of substituting apple sauce for some, or all, of the sugar. Have you tried this? Thanks for your insight!
