Just because Thanksgiving is over doesn’t mean I’m done with pumpkin. In fact, my pumpkin baking is just beginning!

Which is why I’m excited to share this delectable (when was the last time you heard that word?) pumpkin pie bread recipe

Because usually pie gets all the attention at this time of year. Pumpkin pie, apple pie, apple crisp, and more. It’s all pie, all the time.

Well, you might want to just hold up before you get out the rolling pin again. This pumpkin pie bread is kind of like what would happen if quick bread and pie filling had a baby.

It’s a loaf, but it’s got some ooey-gooey pumpkin goodness going on, with yummy crispiness from a dusting of brown sugar.

This pumpkin pie bread is super-easy, super-portable, and could be baked in mini loaves as a hostess gift or for knife-free (read: mess-free) sharing.

I swear I could eat the entire loaf. But I won’t – at least not in front of you.

Quick question...we are at altitude (5280 ft). Would you add or subtract anything from this recipe? This looks so good but baking here has not always worked out well.

Thanks in advance!
