Pumpkin Bread (Gluten Free)


Imagine waking up with a slice of this pumpkin bread, paired with your favorite cup of coffee on a weekend morning with a warm fire crackling away. That’s my idea of a perfect moment. Well, either that or in the middle of a beautiful meadow!

One of my favorite things to make growing up was pumpkin bread. Actually, one of my first recipes shared on my blog was a classic family recipe I used (shhh- this post might be still hiding in the archives in all of it’s iphone photo glory!).

Such fond memories come to mind…it’s been a staple in my kitchen for as long as I can remember and one of my favorite ways to enjoy the fall season.

This recipe is a fresh take on a classic. It’s perfectly moist and the topping…don’t get me started. I hope you enjoy this bread as much as I have and find ways to savor this stunning Autumn season we’re in.

PS – I’m adventuring in NYC this week, love to have you follow along over on Instagram!
