Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Pumpkin Bread RecipeThis is a Quick and Easy Pumpkin Bread Recipe. 

This recipe can also be adapted to make pumpkin bread muffins in stead of a single pumpkin bread loaf if you prefer the individual serving style that muffins offer.  I have included those instructions at the bottom of the recipe.

We really do love pumpkin dessert recipes in my family, but Pumpkin Bread also makes a delicious breakfast or midday snack.
