This Pumpkin Spice Bread is moist and full of spices! It is perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack! Think of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice bread, but better!
I say, given the dumpster-fire of a year we have had so far, we are owed one heck of a Fall! And that includes ALL THE PUMPKIN SPICE!
I am kicking off the PSL season with this pumpkin spice bread, and I think you should too. It is easy, fast, and delightfully spiced. It almost tastes like all the flavor of pumpkin pie was magically inserted into a quick bread.
As soon as the temperature dips, you can find my-basic-ass-self pulling down a can of pumpkin puree and waiting for the first loaf of this bread to come out of the oven. The smells of this bread are what candles wish they could emulate. It took an incredible amount of patience to wait for the bread to cool before slicing it for the video. True sacrifice.
Here’s to hoping that pumpkin bread is the new banana bread!
This recipe makes 2 loaves, which uses an entire can of pumpkin. I like to think that my neighbors and coworkers appreciate these pumpkin spice gifts, but you could also stash one in the freezer for later! No shame in preparedness.
You could also make one loaf, and you use the extra pumpkin puree in this healthier loaf or these muffins, or be bold and make pumpkin spice donuts!!
