Pumpkin bread 3

Time to break out the cinnamon & nutmeg – my favorite season has arrived! I adore everything about Autumn – the cool, crisp air, the leaves changing colors, pumpkins and mums everywhere, Halloween…wait, did I forget to mention the tastes? It’s time for warm spices, hearty stews, and freshly baked bread. So, in honor of it being the first weekend of Autumn, I am making pumpkin bread. Oh, how I love pumpkin bread! And any day I get to use my Kitchen-Aid mixer is a great day 🙂 Since it makes 3 loaves, this is a great recipe to make if you want to take something to share with family, friends, or co-workers.

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
