Pumpkin bread

Pumpkin Bread with Walnuts- its super easy to make!

Jump to recipe

I know everyone made already at least one pumpkin soup this season- am I right? But how about a Pumpkin Bread?

Do you also hate it when you buy a pumpkin, make your soup recipe and then you have still half of your pumpkin left? And 3 days later the Pumpkin still sits on your kitchen counter and you just don’t know what to do?

I had exactly the same! I just made my pumpkin soup (like every autumn straight on the first rainy day) and then I either freeze the leftover pumpkin or I make another soup. Ok, maybe some pasta as well. But even then I sometimes still have Pumpkin laying around.

So if you are in the same position as me, try out my pumpkin bread recipe!

Its super easy to make and absolutely delicious! I even add a bit of ginger and nutmeg for that pumpkin spice feeling ! The hardest part is to shred the pumpkin- use a food processor if you have one. It will definitely speed things up!

I used for my soup and this pumpkin bread a butternut squash, as I love the slightly nutty flavor of it. And its super easy to cut and peel. I am sure you could also bake it with a Hokkaido or any pumpkin of your choice.

But please do not leave the ginger or nutmeg out- it gives it this lovely fall taste. Nearly like the pumpkin spice, just without the allspice (pimento). And for those with a sweet tooth- please do not forget to sprinkle your pumpkin bread with some powdered (confectioners) sugar.
