Halloween ushers in a wonderful time of the year for me, FALL BAKING!!
Okay, I know I live in Florida and our fall is at best summer 2, but I love holiday baking season kicking in right after the Halloween pumpkins get carved up. In our family, Pumpkin Bread and Pumpkin Muffins are a staple after Halloween. They have such a warmth and comfort to them that really makes us feel at home. As soon as we carve up our pumpkin I begin the process of making ALOT of Pumpkin Bread to hopefully get us through the week..lol.
I want to share with you guys the recipe that has been tried and true in our household for years. Of course, make sure to make any dietary substitutions that you need. Let’ gather up the ingredients!
