Mama’s Pumpkin Bread Recipe

This Pumpkin Bread Recipe is very moist and has awesome pumpkin and spice flavor. I sprinkle the top with a dusting of cinnamon and sugar to give it a sweet crunchy top.

The nuts are optional. I use hickory nuts, since we have them in abundance on our property. Oh, and for chocolate lovers like me, add chocolate chips for a little bonus.

With quick breads, the flavors are more intense if you eat them the day after they are baked.  I cover my bread, in the loaf pan on the counter, with a dish towel over night to let the flavors develop.

I make several of these at a time, wrap them up, and freeze them to enjoy later in the year.   I wrap them in a layer of plastic wrap, then a layer of foil and label with the name and date with a permanent marker.

About Nelle

I am Nelle. I grew up in rural, small town, Ohio. When I was young, I learned a lot about homesteading from my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, 4-H, FFA, and others around me.
Now, I’m all grown up, have 6 children of my own, and plan to teach them everything I know.

Here on Mama’s Homestead, we talk and write about homesteading, homeschooling, and kidsteading (homesteading with kids). We teach our kids about survival, self-sufficiency, gardening (vegetable, herb, flower), orchard, beekeeping, home keeping, soap making, harvesting, cooking, food preservation, livestock, nature, crafts, homesteading tools and wares, and more…

Welcome to my homestead…come and learn with us!
