Fresh pumpkin gives this pumpkin bread recipe all the amazing flavor a quick bread should have.
I’m not a big pumpkin lover like many are these days. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin drinks – I can easily pass them all up.
What I can’t pass up is the opportunity to keep food from going to waste. As it was, we happened to have 1 large pumpkin leftover from Halloween that never got carved. I couldn’t just throw it out! So I pureed it up, and stuck it in the fridge.
I got to thinking, what in the world could I use this pumpkin for now? When of course, it dawned on me – quick bread! If you’ve been around, you know I love these quick sweet breads. From my Mom’s Banana Bread to my Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread and Zucchini Bread Balls, I just can’t get enough of them.
The pumpkin bread did not disappoint. The kids gobbled up both loaves for after school snack, though they did leave some for Mark and I to enjoy as well.
I’ll be straight up honest, it definitely tastes like pumpkin. But in bread form, I really didn’t mind it. Who knows, maybe by next year I’ll be eating all things pumpkin with the rest of you – though probably not likely.
I hope you enjoy this recipe for Pumpkin Bread as much as we have.

That’s so funny, Sara. Well, the 1/2 tablespoon exists, should you ever want one.
I saw a test one time that a food magazine did where they measured out 1 tablespoon from several sets of measuring spoons, and they varied. Not good, but maybe in the scheme of things it doesn’t matter much.persian store
