Pumpkin Pie-Spiced Pumpkin Bread

Fall is right around the corner and for me that means it’s Pumpkin Bread season, and no Fall is complete with my mom’s Pumpkin Pie-Spiced Pumpkin Bread!

Pumpkin Bread

My mom has stayed with us the last couple of weeks to help out as we adjust to life with our new little one and I have taken the opportunity to have her make her famous Pumpkin Bread recipe for us. We may have even had it for dinner the day she made it. No seriously…we did. :)

My mom has made this recipe for at least 20 years and it is perfect; there’s no need to search for another recipe!

Cook’s Note For Pumpkin Pie-Spiced Pumpkin Bread:

  • My family likes to top slices of the pumpkin bread with a little cream cheese…delicious!
  • This recipe makes 2 large loaves; save one for your family and give one away to a friend or neighbor! Or just eat a loaf for dinner like we did and save the other one for later. :)

      I can’t speak for other pumpkin bread recipes because this is the only one I have ever made. This is my mom’s recipe that she’s been making for over 25 years. With that said, yes, definitely use baking powder and baking soda as specified in the recipe. I hope this answers your questions. Enjoy! :)
