National Pumpkin Bread Day October 30, 2022

National Pumpkin Bread Day October 30, 2022

When it comes to delicious holidays, today takes the cake, or in this case the bread just in time for Halloween, Oct. 30

While little ghouls and goblins across the nation are getting into the Halloween “spirit” by carving all sorts of designs into pumpkins, how does a slice of homemade pumpkin bread sound? Whether you prefer yours loaded with nuts, chocolate chips or raisins, or Pecans as the innkeeper from MaMere’s Guest House prefers, pumpkin bread is a moist quick bread that is perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack.
