Pumpkin Bread

IMG_0515 (800x533)

Here’s the pumpkin bread recipe I mentioned earlier in the week. A neighbor made us a loaf up at the lake and it’s perfect for breakfast or dessert. The only thing I did was add a little brown sugar on the top before you bake it to give it a nice sugary crust. They also freeze well if you want to bake some in advance. I also put a little loaf of cranberry nut bread in my baskets as well. Click HERE for that recipe. Also, if you want the tags I used on my breads click HERE for the pumpkin bread and HERE for the cranberry bread.
