This spiced pumpkin pecan bread recipe is spicy, warm and moist, and really easy to make. If you don’t have pecans, you can use walnuts.
I made this pumpkin spice bread immediately after making one with herbs and it’s just as easy. By this time I was getting rather hot, being a woman of a certain age, in the kitchen with the oven on, singing and dancing around getting my ingredients together. So if you would prefer not to imagine a middle-aged nutter without a top on making this recipe, I quite understand.
Fortunately, the preparation time was only about 15 minutes as I already had some cooked pumpkin on hand and I made it in the same big bowl I had out. Baking time was just under an hour and the bread is immediately ready to eat after baking, thank heavens.
I couldn’t resist trying it straight away. It’s lovely and moist and the dark brown sugar really makes it special. Can’t wait to try it cold too, and toasted.
If my memory serves me well, enjoying this the day after being baked is also quite wonderful as it has such a wonderful flavor. Sitting on the porch and having a nice cup of coffee with a piece (or two) of this amazing spiced pumpkin pecan bread sounds like the perfect way to start the day.
Don’t forget to invite a friend over to share and why not try some of my other pumpkin bread recipes!
What type of nut would you add to this pumpkin bread instead of pecan?
