Fall just started and the crisp air and leaves changing colors indicate it’s the perfect time to get started with pumpkin recipes. Although I have already started with these pumpkin pancakes and pumpkin muffins, but still there’s so much more that you can do with pumpkin. Like this spicy pumpkin bread recipe
When you make this super moist bread loaf, your house will smell like festive season. I can’t get enough of this melt in your mouth pumpkin bread in the season, and end up making it multiple times. Every time I make at least two loaves of pumpkin bread, but they are gone before I can even start thinking how to save the second loaf.
It is also one of the favorites when we have guests over during Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Every time it comes out perfect, moist from inside and crispy from outside. For now, this is going to the potluck party next week.
ps: We went apple picking this weekend, and we have bags full of apples sitting in my kitchen right now. Stay tuned if you are looking to make some apple recipes.
