Fall Pumpkin Raisin Bread With Walnuts

A pumpkin raisin bread recipe made with pumpkin and flavored with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, raisins and walnuts. Serve for brunch, dessert, or a snack.

What says fall better than pumpkin and the spices like ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg that go with it? This is a nice treat for any occasion like a fall brunch, Thanksgiving, or dessert. If you love the flavor of pumpkin, more than likely you will want to enjoy it more often than just Halloween.

This loaf smells so good when just out of the oven and cooling on a wire rack. It fills your kitchen with the fragrances of fall.

Put it in the oven on a crisp fall day, light a candle and enjoy a slice warm with a good book.

Cut the loaf into small, thin slices and serve it as part of a brunch menu. You can also serve it for afternoon coffee or dessert. Enjoy it with a mug of hot apple cider.

You can leave the raisins and walnuts out if you dislike them or have allergies, but I find the raisins add to the entire flavor of the bread. So, that is up to you. This quick bread is delicious without either of those ingredients.

Serve this pumpkin bread warm with real dairy butter or try this fantastic cream cheese spread.

  1. Hi Laura, I found your blog today via the American Food Blogger’s blog and am so glad I did. Love your commitment to preserving old recipes! I have the good fortune of spending summer vacations in northern Wisconsin. I feel like I recognize your name. Did you previously have SBI recipe websites? Look forward to checking back soon. Warmly, Martha

    1. Hi Martha,

      Yes I did have SBI sites – 2 of them. I combined the two and moved them over to WordPress earlier this year. I just like the format so much better. You have a great site! It is nice to meet you!
