1 (15oz) can pumpkin puree

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp butter extract

1/4 tsp ground ginger


1. Preheat oven to 350°F, and grease & flour three 7x3 inch loaf pans or one bundt pan.

4. Mix the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mix until just incorporated.

5. Divide the batter between the prepared pans.

Never in a million years did I think my kids would love pumpkin bread. It wasn't a thing when I was growing up and I don't think anyone in my family ever made it. My oldest loves it. Every trip to Starbucks includes a Shaken Tea and slice of pumpkin bread. I might be bias but I'm pretty sure mine is better.

It's savory, moist and smells like the holidays. Perfect for family gatherings or brunch.

If a bundt pan isn't your thing, this recipe works well in a sheet or as muffins.
