This Pumpkin Cinnamon Bread is soft, moist, delicious and loaded with raisins and pecans. Super easy to make and completely irresistible.
I adore pumpkin bread, pumpkin spiced latte, pumpkin cakes, pumpkin cookies, anything pumpkin. Which is why I love this time of year, because it’s pumpkin season. I’ve seen a lot of pumpkin recipes lately floating around the blogosphere of all kinds of crazy pumpkin things. But nothing makes me feel better than just baking some good old pumpkin cinnamon bread loaded with raisins and pecans.
This is such an easy recipe that I think every single person should have such a recipe in their arsenal. I know there are many different versions of pumpkin bread out there, you probably have your own too, but I just love my version here because it’s so simple, and I’ve cut the fat down to only 3 grams per slice, which is great!
I’ve talked about this before many times, but you can usually replace the butter or oil required in a quick bread such as banana bread or this pumpkin bread with applesauce and you’ll never miss the extra fat. Your bread will still be nice and moist and still taste delicious. Just give it a try once and you’ll probably never use butter or oil again in such breads.
This recipe will make 3 loaves which obviously you can cut the recipe if you choose to do so, but I love this because whenever I make a quick bread, there’s always someone that wants some and I never have enough, this way I get to keep one and give the rest away. And trust me, they make perfect little gifts, who doesn’t love a freshly baked pumpkin cinnamon bread?
