Apple Pumpkin Bread will probably be the best pumpkin bread you've ever tasted. Soft and tender with a crunchy cinnamon topping.
I've made a lot of pumpkin bread. As one of my favorite treats I make at least two or three new recipes every year. I love to try different variations of it, and literally always have a loaf of it in my freezer throughout the fall months.
So it's saying something when I tell you that this is the best pumpkin bread ever. Don't take that lightly. I make a lot of pumpkin bread.
I may stop trying new recipes now, though. Because this one is seriously the best.
No, scratch that. I could never stop trying new recipes. That's impossible. Now I'll just have to make two to three new recipes PLUS this one every year!
I think that the difference is because you cook the pumpkin before using it in the bread to caramelize it a bit. I thought that seemed a little crazy and not worth the time when I saw it, but decided to try it anyways. You know, try something new for a change like following the recipe. (I really didn't, I changed several other things, but I followed that part!)
Now I will probably try cooking the pumpkin first in absolutely every pumpkin recipe. I'll likely be a little annoying about it and insist it's always necessary.
Now the only question is — how many different variations of this perfect pumpkin bread can I come up with?
I clearly can't just leave well enough alone. That’s no fun.
