The perfect pumpkin bread recipe is a delightful way to enjoy the flavor of pumpkin during fall and the holiday season. Whether healthy, spiced or with added flavors like apple or chocolate, this popular quick bread is a classic, easy fall treat.
This large hearty loaf is a perfect way to round out fall meals. Canned pumpkin, a little brown sugar and ground walnuts give the bread its seasonal flavor and appearance without a lot of fuss on my part.
These cute little loaves blend pumpkin, pistachio, rum and raisins with festive results. “A few years ago during the holiday season, a friend shared this delightful recipe with me,“ recalls Kathy Kittell in Lenexa, Kansas. “Since then, I’ve made it every holiday and shared it with family and friends.“
TIP: Wrap the bread in colored cellophane, tie with festive ribbon and give as a gift.
Tucked into the middle of each moist muffin is a tasty surprise - in the shape of a cube of cream cheese! "The simple filling adds loads of creamy flavor," reveals Denise Nebel of Wayland, Iowa. "The streusel topping is nicely crunchy."
