Pumpkin, Pumpkin, and more Pumpkin! Pinterest and all the Social Medias I follow are being bombarded with Pumpkin theme food right now. I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and share my Pumpkin recipe. It’s not any ordinary Pumpkin recipe; this is my secret recipe that I have been keeping to myself until now (he hee.. I always wanted to say that) . I decided to share it with all of you for being loyal This Ole Mom blog readers. I promise this Pumpkin Bread recipe is moist and delicious, it tastes better than others I have tasted. But, don’t take my word for it make some Pumpkin Bread for yourself using my recipe.
The Cream Cheese glaze drizzled on top of the Pumpkin Bread with the Walnuts adds an extra bit of sweetness to the bread.
Once your friends and family taste this delicious bread, they will be begging you for the recipe. I suggest baking a few loaves as gifts.
I like using a bundt pan when baking my Pumpkin Bread I find it looks more appealing. If you decide to bake your bread in a bundt pan, I don’t suggest filling it up as much as mine.
After my Pumpkin Bread had finished cooking, I let it cool thoroughly for about 45 minutes before I removed it from the bundt pan. Then I drizzled on the Cream Cheese glaze and sprinkled on the Walnuts.
Then I cut myself a big ole’ fat piece! The Pumpkin Bread was so moist and delicious I had a hard time just eating one slice. Are you drooling yet? I know you want the recipe now.
