Pumpkin Bread – Soft and tender pumpkin bread with all the fall spices. Easy to make, great for gifts, and perfect to keep in the freezer.

I love having this easy pumpkin bread on hand all fall long.  It is perfectly moist, tender, and has all the fall spices that I love.  Baking with pumpkin just might be my favorite activity!  These Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are a staple for sure at our house. 

I have been making this pumpkin bread recipe for years, because it is just so simple.  It makes 2 loaves, so I always slice and freeze one so I can enjoy a piece any time. 

Easy pumpkin bread you can have any time. Great to slice and freeze so you can enjoy all season long.



Are you the type of person that believes pumpkin should only be had a couple months of the year?  I am a little on the fence, but my son definitely thinks it should be enjoyed year round.  Thankfully he has grandparents that feed him!  He gets his pumpkin bread and Pumpkin Pie from both grandparents all year round!  
The one thing I really like about this bread recipe is you can freeze some of later!  You know I am all about freeze muffins. I have over 50 muffin recipes on the site and freeze almost all of them.  To freeze bread, I slice and then lay the pieces out on a tray.  Freeze for about an hour and then place in a freezer bag.  Super easy, and you can take out 1 slice whenever cravings strike.

There are so many great things you can make with pumpkin.  This recipe uses a full can, so you will not have any leftovers.  These Chocolate Chip Muffins are always a staple in our house as well.  There is just something about pumpkin and chocolate together!  
I you like chocolate chips or even nuts, walnuts would be great, you can easily add them to this pumpkin bread recipe.  It is very easy to just follow the recipe as it is, and mix in a cup of your favorite mix in!
