I don’t care what day, month or even hour it is, I want this loaded cinnamon chip pumpkin bread for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s seriously that good.
Have you ever made our snickerdoodle banana bars or snickerdoodle banana bread? It’s so delicious and all you have to do it buy those handy little cinnamon chips by Hershey’s in the baking section next to the chocolate chips. I mean, pretty much everything else is exactly the same for a quick bread but those warm, melted cinnamon chip give such an amazing burst of warmth and spice to the bread. This loaded cinnamon chip pumpkin bread is about to be your new fall favorite, and it makes awesome neighbor gifts too!
Can Pumpkin Bread be Frozen?
Yes, to freeze: wrap pumpkin bread tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place in heavy-duty freezer bag.
My neighborhood always passed around neighbor gifts when I was younger. It was a very quiet street, tucked back away from main roads and surrounded by trees. In fact, coming to our house people missed the turn alllll the time because it was just a little private road. The neighbors passed around everything from crafts to home baked goodies, but never anything extravagant. I loved it. I loved seeing what showed up and I loved watching my mom make things for others.
Does Pumpkin Bread Need to be Refrigerated?
To maximize the shelf life of pumpkin bread, cover with foil or plastic wrap or place in a plastic bag to prevent drying out.
Properly stored, freshly baked pumpkin bread will last for about 1 to 2 days at normal room temperature.
In fact, I even remember my mom making reindeer out of wooden spoons hot glued together. Haha! It seems funny to think about now, but although crafts remain even today they’ve changed their style a bit. In fact, I think I’ll google (which totally didn’t even used to exist so how did we function?!) those reindeer and see if anyone knows how to make them still. And in the meantime I’ll bust out another batch of loaded cinnamon chip pumpkin bread so my house smells amazing and our bellies feel even more wonderful.
Is Pumpkin Good for You?
Eating pumpkin is good for the heart.
The fiber, potassium, and vitamin C content in pumpkin all support heart health.
Studies suggest that consuming enough potassium may be almost as important as decreasing sodium intake for the treatment of hypertension, or high blood pressure.
