Pumpkin bread ideas and recipe

pumpkin bread

A neighbor shared her delicious pumpkin-bread recipe with me thirty years ago. It’s a great one to bake ahead and store in your freezer. It makes 14 large muffins, 12 mini loaves, or 2-3 large loaves.

When your guests leave, give them a mini loaf from a basket set by the front door. Or use the small bundt-shaped pumpkin bread with a name tag tied on it as a place holder for your dinner table.

Invite a friend over, brew a teapot of tea or tisane, and cover it with a Tea Tabard (tea cozy). While you visit, the tea cosy and matching Kup Kaps (cup lids) on the mugs will hold in the heat.
