 Pumpkin Bread – Page 125

Lately, everywhere you look you see pumpkin.  I don’t just mean actual big orange squash. Pumpkin flavored everything!  There’s latte, oatmeal, cheesecake, pie, seeds, cookies and of course pumpkin bread! 

Lucky for me, I do love pumpkin bread.  It’s a great fall staple and easy to bake. Since pumpkin comes canned we can pretty much make it any time of the year, but somehow it just tastes better in the fall.

I love the idea of sitting around a fall campfire with friends, drinking mugs of hot apple cider, and eating some freshly baked pumpkin bread. Add a little music to the scene, like In The Wind from my album Believe

What are some of your favorite fall treats? Things that just don’t taste the same other times of the year  Leave me a note in the comments.

 I hope you enjoy this delicious Pumpkin Bread recipe from the Beautiful World cookbook. The book is filled with wonderful All-American and International recipes submitted by my friends across the country and around the world..
