Pumpkin Bread with Brown Butter Glaze


At first, I wasn’t to keen on making pumpkin bread. It just didn’t seem appetizing to me. As fall came around, and pumpkin was being incorporated into everything, I decided to give it a go, and I will never go back! This pumpkin bread is the best pumpkin bread ever! Its super soft and moist, and pairs perfectly with the browned butter glaze.


The brown butter glaze is the perfect addition, because of the nutty and caramel flavor it gives. The pumpkin bread, is just perfectly moist, and has the perfect amount of pumpkin, and spices. If you want to kick it up one more notch, you can even add chocolate chips! If you like simple, make the pumpkin bread, and spread butter on it to make a perfect breakfast! I will be pumping these loaves out of my kitchen every fall, to give to family, friends and neighbors!


Ohh, and how could i forget the aromas! This simple and delicious pumpkin bread will transform your house into a fall wonderland where leaves start to change colors, and people wear scarves!
