The Go-To Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Is it even fall if you don’t make a loaf of Pumpkin Bread? This is our go-to pumpkin bread recipe that we make quite often, every fall from September to Thanksgiving it seems! 

It’s like comfort food to us! With real ingredients like pumpkin and warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, you are going to want to keep a loaf of Pumpkin Bread nearby. 

The wonderful thing about pumpkin is that it adds so much moisture to recipes! You can choose to use a can of pumpkin or if you’d like, to roast your pumpkin. This is a wonderful way to use your harvest if you have a garden like me. Sometimes, we like to add in chocolate chips or chopped nuts to our loaf as well.
