Perfectly Moist Pumpkin Bread

  • As soon as September rolls around, all things pumpkin are fair game in my house. Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin candles, pumpkin decor, pumpkin soap, pumpkin body wash and so much more. I'm one of those crazies. One who looks forward to fall every year. One who has her fall clothes lined up even though it's still hitting 90 degrees each day. I long for fall. Fall makes me happy. 
To celebrate the start of the season, I did some baking last weekend. First up was pumpkin bread. Even though I've made many different kinds of pumpkin bread before, I decided to stick to an original recipe. One with nothing added in, just moist pumpkin bread. It was the right way to kick off fall. I enjoyed the bread in the afternoon with my coffee on the weekend and every morning for breakfast. 

This is one of those recipes that you have to make every year. One your neighbors will be asking for time and time again. Enjoy!
