Break Out the Cozy! It’s Pumpkin Bread Time!

I have made this pumpkin bread recipe for years! I’m not sure why I have never shared this one with you before. When the weather starts to turn I make sure I have plenty of cans of canned pumpkin in my pantry because this pumpkin bread is on repeat all season! Sweet, soft, and cinnamon spiced pumpkin bread topped with buttery crumb topping is my absolute favorite…dare I say it’s even better than Starbucks Pumpkin Bread!  Slather it with butter, add a few chocolate chips (if that’s your thing) and settle in with a cup of coffee. I know you’re going to love this recipe as much as I do!

What To Expect: Why This Is the BEST Pumpkin Bread Recipe?

  • This pumpkin bread freezes beautifully if you wan to make a few and save it for later! 
  • Adaptability! You can add in chocolate chips, nuts (walnuts or pecans would be great), or dried fruit  (raisins or dried cranberries) if you would like!
