The Most Amazing Soft and Moist Pumpkin Bread

This incredibly soft and moist pumpkin bread is packed with pumpkin flavor and fragrant autumn spices. It’s the epitome of fall in every bite!

This recipe is simple as can be, yet it’s the most delicious classic pumpkin bread. Just flour, baking soda, pumpkin spice and a pinch of salt mixed with some pumpkin puree, oil, sugar and eggs. Nothing unnecessary, nothing extra.
