Homemade Pumpkin Bread

We had a wonderful Christmas last week so I wanted to dedicate this week to sharing our adventures. First up, this amazing holiday bread recipe that was given to me by my friend Talitha. It’s delicious and makes a great gift for the holidays and even New Years Day. Up through the new year there are always visitors coming by and family and friends to catch up with so this is perfect to have handy! I made it for the crew on The Real and it was a hit. It could be a winter hostess gift, too… So many possibilities.

½ t. salt
½ t. nutmeg
1 2/3 c. all purpose flour

Additional ingredients

    It says 14 tsp. Baking Powder . I assume that you mean 1/4 tsp. Baking Powder. Correct? I love collecting and trying new recipes. Thanks.

  • Ann

    Oh, sorry to sound critical but it says 1.2 cups Water. Can you let me know what you mean by that?

    What is the addition shown in the photos? Nuts? Chocolate?

  • Kemi Mary Balogun

    Nice recipe! Can you replace the pumpkin with any other fruits?
