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.
"I love chocolate, so I experiment with it in many recipes," writes Shirley Glaab from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. "The miniature semisweet chips in this tender bread are wonderful with the cranberries, pumpkin and spices."
I love muffins, and these are among the most irresistible ones I have ever tasted. These go together in less than an hour. Best of all, the sweet aroma of pumpkin, brown sugar and maple syrup fills the house while they're baking.
