Pumpkin bread is perfect for the fall and holidays. This delicious pumpkin bread is one of my favorites to make this time of year!
This is a recipe my sisters and I have made for years. I can’t even begin to count how many loaves of this I have made over the years. I have made it for my family. I have taken it to many holiday events. And I have given many loaves as gifts. That is how much I love this recipe.
I originally shared this recipe back in November of 2008. It is one of those recipes that we love, but it gets buried in the archives of my site. I updated the pictures and knew that I wanted to share it again with you all.
I have quite a few pumpkin bread and muffin recipes on my site. We love them all, but the recipe I am sharing today is my favorite holiday special treat type pumpkin bread. It is one of those recipes that we make year after year.
This bread is so good. It is not very healthy, but it so very good.
This bread is a treat. It is more dessert and cake like. My kids have been known to eat it for breakfast, but it is more of a dessert or a holiday breakfast treat.
I have been making this recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas for years. My sister first made this recipe years ago and it has become a must make for our whole family. It is adapted from a 1998 Taste of Home magazine.
