Pumpkin Bread

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Rain is pounding on the roof and the sun porch, darkness has invaded our evenings until daylight savings time comes to play. And since I received a request, the only thing left to do was bake. Tonight I am making pumpkin bread, from "The Wooden Spoon Bread Book". I have used this book time and time again through the years. It is one of my favorites!

  1. Pumpkin is certainly an ingredient on everyone's mind (and taste buds!) lately. I just made a pretty darn good pumpkin cream cheese bars recipe that was super simple.

  2. I'm so very happy for you, beautiful rings,, I agree canned pumpkin is so much better for breads and pies,,

  3. Great looking pumpkin bread, Melynda. I would have to make the pumpkin puree from scratch since canned pumpkin is not available here. But looks like this would be worth the effort.

    You must be getting so excited with the big day now so close. I hope you have a wonderful day :-)
