It’s the fourth recipe in my mini-series of Everything Pumpkin Pie Spice and it is Pumpkin Bread. This recipe is so easy to prepare, everything is mixed in less than 5 minutes.
What takes time is the baking (53 minutes), but it’s really worth it. Pumpkin Bread can survive to a maximum of two days in my house, it is such a great compliment to coffee, milk, tea, and is amazing on its own.
Pumpkin bread is moist and light, if you wish you can use the same batter to make muffins, just reduce the baking time to 20 – 22 minutes, depending on your oven.
Making Pumpkin Bread.
To make this delicious bread you have to grab the recipe for my Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix since that what you’ll be using to give this beauty an amazing flavor.
I have added raisins and I think it goes really well with pumpkin bread, but you can add nuts, or even chocolate chips, make sure you add a small amount, though, so you can enjoy the taste of the pumpkin and spices.
