I wanted to start my fall baking off with a classic recipe. Nothing quite says it is autumn like pumpkin flavored treats. Who can resist a slice of pumpkin bread fresh out of the oven? This bread tastes great as is but the cinnamon glaze adds a little extra moisture and extra flavor. You could also top the bread with powdered sugar or a cream cheese icing. I don’t really think you can go wrong with pumpkin bread. I usually make my pumpkin bread plain but adding pecans or chocolate chips would also be delicious.

Pumpkin Bread Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp allspice

  7. Let the bread cool in the pans before removing.
  8. While the bread is cooling prepare the icing. Pour the icing over the cooled loaves.

Cinnamon Glaze Ingredients

    I’m in Flagstaff at 7,000′ and this turned out wonderfully! I don’t know if it was necessary, but I ended up adding maybe another tablespoon or so of powdered sugar to the icing. I’d never done icing before and it seemed thin to me, but who knows maybe it would’ve been just fine.
