Quick & Easy Pumpkin Bread Recipe
Looking for a simple yummy Fall treat? This weekend is a perfect time to give this Pumpkin Quick Bread a try!
This isn't a fancy recipe, but it is the BEST Pumpkin Bread recipe I've ever made.
My friend Dana gave me this recipe forever ago, and anytime I make it, it gets gobbled up so fast I always consider doubling the recipe. My kids eat it for breakfast, take it to school for a snack, and still want more for dessert.
The great thing about it is it makes enough for three loaves, so my plan is always to make one to eat, one to freeze, and one to give away.
However, we’ve never had a singe loaf of Pumpkin Bread make it to the freezer, because we devour it long before it ever gets there!
This was probably the first quick bread recipe I ever made when my husband and I were first married, and now I have to make a few loaves each Fall. (For a delicious loaf of homemade bread, see my go-to BEST Bread Machine Dough Recipe here)
My favorite thing about the recipe? While it's baking your home will smell divine, like Fall just walked right through your door. Mmmmmmm!
Warning – Get Your Canned Pumpkin QUICK!
If you don't have a can of pumpkin puree in the pantry, I recommend picking one up this weekend because it looks like they're going to be hard to find again this year! Is there a canned pumpkin shortage? Who knows!
I noticed that my Walmart was already out of their Great Value brand and the smaller cans of Libby's were pretty low in stock too. Our Aldi has plenty at this point, but it's still early in the season.
Last year people were baking a lot more due to being quarantined – so it's possible this is going to be a hot commodity again this year for baking pumpkin breads….
Okay let's get baking!
