Pumpkin Walnut Bread



Of course I couldn't make pumpkin soup and pumpkin birthday cake without making some yummy pumpkin bread. The aroma of it baking in the oven elicited the warmest of warm fall fuzzies. I love the smell of cinnamon...it's the coziest spice of all.


I used an Epicurious recipe (found here).

I think this will be it for pumpkin recipes for awhile. But come November, I'll make pumpkin pies. Also, due to the abundance of pumpkins the garden produced this year (I counted twenty-five yesterday), I may make Pumpkin Walnut Bread to give as gifts over the holidays.

Our pumpkin plant, on average, was supposed to produce four to five pumpkins...so not sure how ours exploded to five times that amount. Perhaps the pumpkins were trying to make up for the tomatoes that didn't fair so well.

Happy pumpkin season to you! xo

  2. Trina, your pumpkin walnut bread looks divine....I shall have to try it. I remember growing up when my family planted a pumpkin patch in our garden....we had so many too....I'm guessing over 50. We used a lot of them to decorate the porch for Fall, then my mom cooked a bunch up, pureed their insides and froze the puree for pies and baked goods. Such fond memories. Treasures in life. ;)

  17. Hi Trina...I was wondering if you were going to make pumpkin bread! It looks delicious and it's so pretty on the marble with your *beautiful* knife cozying up right next to it!
    It's must be nice to know your land produces extremely happy pumpkins...they settled and multiplied. Maybe if we have a warmer summer next year your tomatoes will do the same.

    I think some pumkin bread is in order now!
    xoxo J~

  23. The pumpkin cake looked so yummy that I made it and took it to work. Everyone loved it. Since it only took half a can of pumpkin, I still have half a can left. I was going to make another cake, but now I'm thinking I might have to make the pumpki bread!

  33. That recipe sounds amazing! I will definitely try it!!

  34. Tried and true! Yep, I tried the pumpkin bread recipe and heartily agree with you. It's scrumptious. I donate baked goods for our little theater company to sell in their lobby during intermission. I'm thinking I might use the same recipe for them only butter and sugar the inside of a bundt pan because that crunch of the granulated sugar was a tasty bonus. They would still be able to sell it by-the-slice too and make a little extra money.
