September is upon us so you know what that means…time to start baking pumpkin bread!
I distinctly remember the first time I tried pumpkin bread over 12 years ago. Like many American traditions, it simply wasn’t a thing in Ireland. I’d never heard of it. The “bread” in the title was also kind of deceiving, since clearly with the amount of sugar that goes into this recipe it’s more like a cake. But that’s ok. Let’s call it bread, eat it for breakfast and keep it our little secret!
My mother-in-law makes the most wonderful pumpkin bread and I use the very same recipe. After a little research on Pinterest and Google, I realized it is a quite commonly used recipe that yields wonderfully soft and moist pumpkin bread.
While the original recipe calls for a full cup of oil, my mother-in-law’s version has been modified to half oil/half applesauce, which you will see in the recipe printable I’m sharing with you today. When I’ve been short on oil, I’ve even increased the apple sauce to 2/3 of a cup with only 1/3 cup of oil and still had perfect pumpkin bread.
Back to the recipe printable! It’s super cute printed out and framed, or printed index card sized and included as a gift along with a mini pumpkin bread. I’ll be doing both this season!
