Today I have another recipe that is near and dear to my heart – pumpkin bread. Years ago I belonged to a crafting group and my dear friend gave me a loaf of this bread. I may or may not have eaten the entire loaf myself. I sheepishly asked for the recipe and she graciously agreed. There is nothing better than a moist quick bread in my book.
That beautiful loaf pan is by Fiesta. I am in love with their dinnerware – particularly the baking items. There is something special about using a beautiful dish to create your recipe that makes it extra enjoyable. I had to stare at the contrast of the orange bread against the lapis loaf pan for a few minutes because it was so aesthetically pleasing to me. The adorable appetizer plates are also by Fiesta – can you tell we are big fans around here? Be sure to check out our guest post over on their blog for another delicious pumpkin bread variety.
I think I mentioned that I accidentally ate a whole loaf of this stuff…so thank goodness this recipe makes 2 loaves! One for you and one for a neighbor – or one for today and one for tomorrow. Either way. ;)
So cozy up during these crisp months and bake yourself some pumpkin bread! Your tummy will thank you.
