Gift Size Pumpkin Nut Bread

Moist and delicious pumpkin nut bread made in small size loaf pans - perfect for gift giving!

This is the time of year that all things pumpkin sound just a little more delicious.  I’ll admit to not being too adventurous with pumpkin flavors in my baking, but I do enjoy this pumpkin nut bread that I’ve been making for many years.

I originally cut this recipe out of my local newspaper many years ago that was named “Gift-size Pumpkin Nut Bread”.  I thought it might be a handy recipe to keep around for exactly that – gift giving.  And I’ve used it many times for that too!

This recipe gave instructions for baking in smaller sized loaf pans which I have always done.  I have never made this recipe in a standard 9×5 loaf pan and because it creates a very moist bread, I would guess it would take quite a long time to get a large loaf baked through.

I’ve always used either the disposable foil mini sized loaf pans (I usually divide it between three of those) – OR – I have two older loaf pans that are 7.5 x 3.25 x 2.25 (which is exactly what the original recipe called for!) This is my favorite way to use this recipe as I can make one loaf to keep and one loaf to give away. You can still find a loaf pan of that type size on Amazon here:  2-Cup loaf pans.
