The BEST Pumpkin Bread Recipe

You know a recipe is good when you have made eight loaves of it in three weeks. No shame. Although, to be honest, two of those I completely forgot any leavening. Best part, it was our first time making it and S and I were eating this… pumpkin fudge wondering if it was just undercooked. 0/10, would not recommend.

We had a work Thanksgiving party and brought three loaves. By the time the potluck ended it was almost gone. S was laughing at me so hard, when we left I grabbed the tray with the leftovers to take home because I didn’t want it to go to waste. Again, no shame.

I wish I had taken photos of it, because it looked just glorious. Unfortunately, that would have taken away from me eating it. Your loss is my gain… literally.
