There was one can of pumpkin left in the pantry.
Believe it or not, I let October and November
pass me by without making my favorite
Pumpkin Bread!
Lo and behold, I came across this vintage recipe
on Pinterest and decided to bake a loaf.
Oh my, my......yes my loves,
it is Blue Ribbon worthy!

I will no longer wait until Fall to bake this lovely
quick bread recipe. How divine
to enjoy this with morning coffee or tea.
I highly recommend this one!
Y'all enjoy!
The lovely tea towel was part
of a lovely gift from the Stonewall Kitchen!


  1. I knew that there would be another beautiful header in all its winter glory! Now this is a recipe I am much interested in because the last pumpkin breads I made in November were terrible. That recipe called for a cup and a half of water and, believe me, the flavor was watered down and it took forever to bake. This sounds much more like it! (Alas, only frozen pumpkin and no handy leftover can in the pantry.)

  2. It looks beautiful. You have me craving cinnamon now! -Jenn

  3. Oh...this looks so good. Happy New Year to you and yours.

  10. Just made two loaves and my home smells like Fall Y'all---warm and welcoming. I needed to bake them for one hour and ten minutes, but it was worth the extra time. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!
