This month’s challenge #OurFamilyTable is quick breads. I absolutely love quick breads. Quick is in the name after all! I’ve shared my aunt’s famous Zucchini Bread and our families Delightful Banana Bread. Now since we are moving into fall it’s time to share another family favorite, Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Quick Bread.
I recently visited Williams Sonoma and the most amazing smell was coming from the store. They were making their pumpkin spice quick bread that they sell from a mix. Their bread is fantastic, but it’s also a bit expensive and I prefer to make my breads from scratch. This recipe smells just like being in the store and tastes just as amazing, all using ingredients in your pantry or that you have on hand.
