The Most Delicious Pumpkin Bread

12 slices

A friend recently brought me this loaf of pumpkin bread when she visited me. We ate it with my Pumpkin Butter. This recipe is partly what made my pumpkin butter taste so good, I am sure!

In fact, this Pumpkin Bread is so good it should probably be called Pumpkin Cake. It is that delicious!

If you have your own pumpkin, it is easy to cut it in half and roast it in the oven to cook it. Just add a little water to keep it from drying out.

I got more than enough pumpkin for this recipe! In fact, I used the pumpkin in several other things, like pumpkin frozen yogurt!

You could freeze one loaf or give it away. Or eat both of them!

Yes, I did ask permission to share the recipe with you here. And no, she is not online so I can’t link to her to give her the credit. But if you try her recipe and comment here about how good it is, I will be sure to pass on the compliments to her! : )

I love to toast pumpkin bread or banana bread like this in my little toaster oven. Then spread butter over it and it is sooo delicious! Especially with a cup of tea or even milk.
