Pumpkin Bread Recipe

I have been in the baking mood – especially for pumpkin recipes!! 🙂 Fall is here, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Earlier this week, I gathered ingredients to make The BEST Pumpkin Bread with Brown Butter Maple Icing recipe from The Domestic Rebel. I have changed the name because I didn’t actually make the icing for the bread. I chose to just top my slice (or two – or three!!) with some butter. It turned out so great!! It was very moist and delicious. I bet the icing would be good too, and I will try that next time. Click here for the original recipe from The Domestic Rebel.

Click here for the recipe for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars that I made earlier this month. They are yummy too! 🙂 It worked out so nicely that I needed 1 cup of pumpkin puree for this recipe, and I had that amount leftover from the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars recipe! Happy baking! Let me know what you think!! 🙂
