Picture of Nana's Easy Pumpkin Bread
This is a recipe from one of my grandmother's cook books. This is an extremely easy recipe and the bread is easy to store.

Makes 4 loaves.

When I was making these I was making a double batch so don't be confused when you see 8 tins in the oven instead of 4.

Please do not rate my recipes unless you have tried them.

Step 1: Ingredients

I've used your recipe for the last 2 years and everyone loves it. i've done the loafs and also made them into muffins too. however i added chopped walnuts to the top for the added texture and it was a big hit :D

Oh how I love pumpkin bread and more if it's easy to make. I am going to make them in the very small loaf pans for sharing. A cream cheese icing goes well with this....I can hardly wait...YUM !

Ohhhhh MAN am I making this! What if this and banana bread had a child? I think I'll try that, too. Banana bread...(!)
Hey I was wondering if almond meal was added or substituted for the flour would it still be edible/stable enough to well... eat. Please reply if you have an answer

I'd never heard of almond meal so I looked it up. On this website, http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/products/p/almondmeal.htm, it said that you could use almond meal instead of flour for breads that don't require a real dough but you just had to add extra eggs to give the bread structure. If you try the recipe with almond meal let me know how it works out! I have some friends that can't eat wheat and so this might be useful information for them. I hope this helps!
