Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread-pumpkin bread with a sweet cinnamon sugar swirl! This easy pumpkin bread is a fall favorite.
I know it isn’t officially fall yet, we have a few days, but I couldn’t wait any longer to bust out the pumpkin. Over the weekend, I made the most delicious Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread. Our house smelled amazing while it was baking and the loaf didn’t even last a day. Yep, it’s a winner!
I love making quick breads because they are super easy, hence the name quick:) This pumpkin bread is no exception, you don’t even need a mixer!
The bread is moist, perfectly spiced, and the cinnamon swirl through the center is to die for! I also add a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar to the top of the loaf to make it pretty and you can never have too much cinnamon or sugar:)
The pumpkin bread is great for breakfast, snack time, or dessert. We ate it all day long until it was gone. Oops!
This Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread is a must make for fall. I am making another loaf this week and chances are it won’t last long either! I might have to hide it from my boys:)
