Hey! Still doing the ‘pumpkin’ thing, hope you are too! Because you are going to love this Pumpkin Walnut Bread and this yummy treat is definitely my son Derek’s favorite!
It’s so moist and flavorful, and those crunchy walnuts! Oh my!
I went to Florida a couple of months ago, and this is what he requested, besides cookies.
Yep! So, of course, as an obliging mother, I aim to please. I love baking and I kinda went overboard a bit, but let’s face it, I live in Indiana, the ‘adult’ kids live in Florida and this is when I get to show some love!
While I visited, I made these Pumpkin Cranberry Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars and these Delish Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars , Old Fashioned Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies and a couple loaves of this Pumpkin Walnut Bread.
Then trying to do it all, you get lots of dirty dishes in the process…ugh!
Have I ever told you, I hate washing dishes.
Coming from a family of six, we didn’t have the luxury of an electric dishwasher. So, my sisters, Mom and I, were the lucky automatic dishwashers and it sucked, literally! It was a constant, 3-4 times, daily chore and my least favorite chore of all time! So, to whoever invented the precious dishwasher? I totally love you!
I made this pumpkin bread with olive oil and it is so good!
My son took it in to his work to share and everyone loved it too. A nice cup of coffee or hot cocoa with pumpkin bread is a nice little snack. I really hope you enjoy it. If you need some quick bread tips, I’ve got ya covered.
