Fall Recipes are My Favorite
Fall time means snuggling up in the morning with a flannel blanket and a hot cup of coffee. Colorful leaves changing, apple picking, pumpkin patches, hayrides, scary movies, and spices galore. Pumpkin spice bread is a seasonal favorite that families enjoy all autumn long. At least in my family that is.
This recipe is so moist, it’s very simple to stir together and throw into the over to bake. You might even enjoy a little pumpkin bread glaze on yours but that is completely optional. I love it on mine.
This recipe is slightly adapted from this pumpkin bread by VeganRicha. I loved her version and definitely want to give her the credit. I’ve never heard of using powdered sugar in a baked bread but it seemed to effect the texture a lot. I’ve been making this at the bakery I work at part time and it’s selling like crazy.
Now, you might think that a plant based pumpkin bread can’t possibly be as good as one filled with non vegan ingredients. Not gonna straight up say you’re wrong because once you try this recipe I won’t have to.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE RECIPE FOR THE BEST VEGAN PUMPKIN BREAD
If you have a mixing bowl, a whisk, a bread pan, and the ingredients that’s pretty much all you need. If you like a very spiced bread feel free to go a little heavier on the pumpkin spice. The bake time with vary based on your oven. I’ve made this both in a professional oven at a bakery and in my home oven and the time was very different. My current oven is a piece of…it’s not nice. ;P
