We’ve all been in this situation- some friends let you know they may pop by for a visit, and you think to yourself, “Shoot- I don’t have anything delicious to offer!” (Maybe when you’re The Baker Chick these thoughts occur more than with others!) Anyway- lucky for both of us, this is the easiest, fastest and truly most delicious pumpkin bread I’ve ever had. It’s a recipe that you really must have in your collection because it’s just that good. In no time, you’ll have a warm loaf of bread and your guests will be impressed with your kitchen savvy-ness.
I plan on tripling the recipe next time I make it to have some extra for gifts, (or possibly some mini loaves if I ever get around to buying those cutie pans.) The bread is even more moist after being wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in the fridge overnight.
The recipe itself is the perfect, classic, pumpkin bread. The texture is soft and fluffy, it’s full of spice, with a sweet crust that made the edge pieces my favorite part. I thought about adding a crumb topping or some mix ins, but decided in the end what I needed was a simple, classic pumpkin loaf recipe I could keep coming back to for years! This one’s a keeper folks!
