14 Best Pumpkin Bread Recipes | Recipes, Dinners and Easy Meal Ideas



Pumpkin spice and all the nice things

Get out your best loaf tin because there’s no way you can trawl through these recipes and you don’t want to try one right away. We can’t pick a favorite pumpkin recipe — how can you choose between pumpkin pie, roasted pumpkin seeds, and pumpkin soup, all of which are perfect in their own way? But we can easily say that pumpkin bread is a classic we never tire of making. The great thing about it is that it’s easy to enjoy all year round; Many of these recipes call for canned pumpkins, so you don’t have to wait until fall. (However, if you’re at the height of PSL season and want to pair your next slice with a Pumpkin Spice Latte, we support that!) Start with our Best Pumpkin Bread recipe. It’s perfectly moist, easy to make and not too sweet. You can toast it and spread it with butter or cream cheese, or maybe even try a slice with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
