Mom’s Pumpkin Bread

Mom's Pumpkin Bread

Everybody has nostalgic recipes, recipes that take us instantly back to our childhood. I have a lot of these types of recipes, but this pumpkin bread is pretty high up on my list. The smell alone brings me back to my parents’ house and a much simpler time. I make it every fall and tend to freeze a few loaves so that we can enjoy it whenever we’re craving something that makes us feel a little nostalgic. If you’ve seen my blog, you’ll notice that I usually post more than just one picture…well not this time. I was so impatient baking this year’s first loaves of pumpkin bread that I literally rushed and forgot to stop for pictures…whoops! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family!
