Perfect Pumpkin Bread Recipe

I may have mentioned I wouldn’t be doing any more Pumpkin recipes, but I may have fibbed. I have one more I wanted to try this week, and the next one is from my mom.

My mom has always been known for her bread. It always turns out SOOO good, and so soft, and she usually gets requests not only from the kids, but from anyone who has had her bread before. In fact, she usually gets orders at Christmas time because everyone wants it. 😉

I’m thinking this next recipe will become one of those as well because everyone loved it! She found the recipe from HERE and just changed it up a bit by adding some Cinnamon and Sugar on top. :)

    So when do you sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar on top? and how much?

  2. 3

    The last time I made this recipe I used half white sugar and half light brown sugar… Very Yummy!! I also like to sprinkle some sparkling sugar on top, the course sugar gives it a nice crunch..

    Can I use my frozen pumpkin for this?

  5. 9

    The recipe calls for 3 7×3 pans – can you use an average size loaf pan, like 9×5?

      Yes, and it will probably just make two. Not sure on the cooking time so I would just cook a tid longer but keep and eye on it. :)

    I found your recipe on pinterest and just made this pumpkin bread….delicious! I used applesauce in place of half of the oil and added some mini chocolate chips. I think chocolate chips make everything a little yummier! Thanks for the good recipe!
