For me, a perfect quick bread is moist and just barely sweet. My kindergartener wanted to make a bread using pumpkin and apple – both of which we had picked at a local farm one weekend. We created this bread with those items in mind, though we used 100% pure canned pumpkin and applesauce from a jar for ease! This bread is spiced with autumn flavors and quite moist thanks to the pumpkin, olive oil and applesauce. It’s great for breakfast or an afternoon snack with tea.

where can i buy the beautiful paper loaf pans you used in your recipe?
I bought mine from Sur La Table: http://www.surlatable.com/product/PRO-14912/Paper-Loaf-Molds. Happy baking!
Just made this bread! Daughter loves it! Thanks. ps) I am the daughter of your Auntie B’s friend Joan. Remember me?
Sarah!! Of course I remember you! So nice to hear from you and I’m thrilled your daughter loved the pumpkin bread. What a treat to be in touch…thanks so much.
This looks so wonderful! I’ve saved this to make soon. And I agree – I love to add pumpkin to all kinds of things. I frequently add it to stews to amp up the broth too.
Ooh, stews! Never though of that. Great suggestion.
Great recipe! Super moist and tasty. The whole family loved it!
Glad to hear it was a hit! I’m actually baking up a pumpkin loaf right this minute. I just can’t get enough of this stuff.
It took longer to cook then 45 min. I should have checked before taking it out and serving…
The baking time can vary based on your oven and the pan you use. It’s a good idea to poke a toothpick in the center to make sure it comes out clean (indicating its baked through!). Sorry you didn’t discover this until serving!
Made this last weekend with orange-infused olive oil and it was fantastic! DH has already asked for a second loaf–it’s in the oven right now.
