Pumpkin Bread, Yes Please!
Fall is in full swing here in Arkansas, although the temperatures may not always reflect what the calendar is telling us. While the beautiful foliage begins to decorate our beautiful state many of us are adorning our tables with our favorite fall foods.
Nothing says fall favorites to me more than a loaf of pumpkin bread in my opinion, and my 10 son agrees as well. This recipe is one of his favorites and he lingers in the kitchen the whole time it is baking and cooling.
The smell of this bread baking in your home will draw loved ones into the kitchen and have them drooling just as it does my son!
This simple recipe has been warming hearts and creating smiles around my autumn table for many years and I don’t see it changing any time soon.
Baking and Storage
I know that there are tons of retail stores out there that are stocking their shelves with pumpkin bread mixes as I type this, but let me encourage you to try your hand at baking from scratch. I promise you that you will not be disappointed and once you see how simple it is you’ll never need that box mix again!
The great thing about this recipe is that it is simple enough for even the newest of bakers but delicious enough to wow even the star baker in your family. Not only is this bread recipe easy, but it can be made in advance and stored in the freezer until needed.
Just simply bake and cool your bread and wrap them tightly in foil or plastic wrap and freeze. When you are ready to use the bread, just take it out of the freezer and let it thaw on the counter before serving.
The Gift of Baking!
So whether you’re getting ahead on your holiday baking or just stocking the freezer with lunch box desserts this will be your go-to recipe. The recipe makes two large loaves or five mini loaves, so baking and sharing have never been easier. Another great way to use this delicious treat is as a gift to your family and friends.
This bread, wrapped and placed in a beautiful bag would make the perfect gift for neighbors! It is practical and way better than any old ugly sweater they’ll hide in the closet later.
I love practical giving at the holidays. I try to focus on giving every gift that they can use right away and enjoy. I don’t anyone that wouldn’t be happy to see someone bless them with a delicious homemade treat that they could share with their family.
I hope your home is filled with blessings this fall and that you and your family share many laughs and meals around your table! Maybe this recipe finds a home in your list of fall favorites like it has among my family. I would love to hear from you if you try it!
