Pumpkin Bread

Nothing perfumes my kitchen more than a beautiful spiced pumpkin bread baking in the oven.  With fragrant cinnamon and ginger, this bread just feels like fall to me. Here is my twist on this seasonal bread that your whole family will love.

I love to add coconut flakes and golden raisins which combine to give a great texture and a tad of sweetness to this recipe, but feel free to omit them if your family likes things on the plainer side.  This bread turns out super moist, with the pumpkin giving it a creamy texture.

Whether you serve it warm from the oven for breakfast, wrap a slice to tuck in a lunch box, or slice, toast and smear with creamy cheese for an easy appetizer, you and your family are sure to love this recipe.   In short, it’s just really, really good.
