Sour Cream Pumpkin Bread

Last weekend marked the beginning of Fall (although, it doesn’t feel like Fall in Florida yet) so you know what that means. Pumpkin flavored goodies! A few of my all time favorites are pumpkin cake, pumpkin pie, pumpkin flavored coffee and last but not least, pumpkin bread.

Today I will be traveling to Lakeland to see some of my friends. I decided I wanted to make them some sweet treats and I made a list of what I would make: sugar coated pecanschocolate chip cookies (recipe to come), banana bread muffins (made with my sour cream banana bread recipe) and sour cream pumpkin bread. This pumpkin bread came out very moist and delicious! I am sure that my friends will love it. I hope you enjoy the recipe too!

  13. I needed to use some sour cream and pumpkin up and thanks to google, I found this recipe. I doubled it and used 1/2 butter and 1/2 coconut oil. It made 12 regular sized muffins, 3 mini loaves, and the rest ended up being about 3/4 of a regular sized loaf. My kids say this is the absolute best pumpkin bread they have ever tasted…and we make a pretty good pumpkin bread ;) Thank you for the recipe!
