How to make pumpkin bread with butter? I sometimes make my pumpkin bread with butter. Here’s a link to the recipe with butter if that is more your style.

CAN I MAKE A PUMPKIN BREAD WITH A  REAL  PUMPKIN? It’s best to use the large carving and decorative pumpkin for just that, carving and decorating. They’re not meant to be roasted or steamed to get the puree. Although I do have friends that have used carving pumpkins to bake and cook with. You would get better results for this bread using a sugar pumpkin, butternut squash or kabocha pumpkin for puree. I used canned pumpkin for this bread and that’s what I usually do. HOW TO MAKE A GLUTEN-FREE PUMPKIN BREAD? I love to use King Arthur’s gluten-free all purpose flour Blog post updated. First posted in Sept. 2006 I usually make one loaf plain and one loaf with semi-sweet chocolate chips tossed in the batter. I was very distracted taking the photos of the bread from the tempting scent of cinnamon and ginger. I had to have just one more slice. My second of the day so far. It is SO good! Keep one loaf for yourself, and give one to your favorite friend or neighbor or teacher. They will be so very grateful.
