Fall is one of my very favorite seasons. I have so many favorites during fall. I love the weather change, and the flannel shirts. I love the festivals and the pumpkin patches. I love the obsessions with pumpkin spice, the lattes and the candles. I love when it gets closer to Thanksgiving, the menu planning and the grocery shopping. But one of my very favorite things about fall is the pumpkin bread. It’s tradition and not to mention delicious, easy to make and all the pumpkin lovers will love it!
With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I wanted to share my love of pumpkin bread with you. Okay, I really just wanted to share the amazing recipe so you can indulge in it and fall in love with it as much as I have. This bread is great for an appetizer on Thanksgiving or on your dessert trays. It’s even the perfect gift to take to your hostess on Thanksgiving.
Now there’s one thing you can’t tell anyone about this recipe. You can’t tell them how much sugar is in it. As far as you’re concerned it’s fat-free, sugar-free and even calorie-free, all with the same great taste.
I know this time of the year is such a busy season. I know making bread can seem like a daunting task that we just don’t have time for. At first I thought it was too much in between bottles, diapers and fallen out pacifiers. I didn’t think I’d have time, but I knew I needed to do something for myself. I knew I needed to slow down, enjoy following some directions and reflect on all I have to be thankful for. I hope during this season you’re able to get a few minutes to yourself, whether it’s making this recipe, taking a bubble bath or just sitting on your porch and just think of things you have to be thankful for. I also hope you really enjoy this bread. Remember, fat-free, sugar-free, calorie-free!
