Pumpkin Spice Bread Recipe


Pumpkin Spice Bread Recipe

Kids love it, grown-ups love it…this pumpkin bread is hard to beat!

My grandmother clipped this pumpkin bread recipe from a magazine over 50 years ago, and it is my most-cherished family recipe. One of my clearest childhood memories is baking the loaves with my mom and then carting them off to every neighborhood potluck and holiday party. Now I bake this pumpkin bread with my own kids and it’s just as wonderful today as it was back then. It’s easy to make — just a bit of mixing and stirring, pop it in the oven, and, in about an hour, you’ll have a house smelling of sweet autumn spices and two scrumptious, pumpkiny loaves.

This is the original recipe from my grandmother’s recipe box; as you can see, it has seen its share of spills!
