Pumpkin Bread

If there is something I love of fall is pumpkin.

Pumpkins are so healthy and so delicious and I love to incorporate them in many recipes: soups. cookies, muffins, cakes, and why not, even bread!

Here is a recipe for making pumpkin bread I tried last week. My bf and I whipped off the whole loaf in less than 2 days.

If you love pumpkin, like me, here are some other tasty recipes.

In a bowl of your electric mixer combine softened butter, sugar, eggs and pumpkin pure. Mix the ingredients together until creamy. then add the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and salt. Add more flour if needed. You need to get a mixture that holds itself on a spoon….
