Homemaking, Large Family

Pumpkin Bread

This bread is a favorite at our house. It is quick to bake up and can be made a few different ways for some variety.

My mom gave me this recipe and it is the same one I had as a kid when I would go to school. It is great for a large family because it is made in a half sheet pan rather than a 9×13.

Sometimes I like to sprinkle chocolate chips on the top before baking, other times I put some nuts in while mixing, but most of the time I just make it as is and the kids (and hubby) gobble it down.
