Cozy Up To Fall with Good Old Fashioned Pumpkin Bread


Ah! The crisp cool air and the changing of the autumn leaves… Oh, wait! We live in Florida. Oh well, a girl can dream. Ever since I was a little girl, it has been our family tradition to make my grandma’s famous pumpkin bread during the fall. You are lucky today because she allowed me to share with you her secret recipe. So, bake away. This recipe is also great for Thanksgiving and as a hostess gift for holiday parties. It also freezes well if you want to make it ahead of time. Either way, go crank down the air, grab a blanket, and pair your freshly baked pumpkin bread with some coffee. Enjoy!
