I {HEART} My Cake Stand & Pumpkin Bread

There's nothing wrong with appreciating the simple things.  My most favorite pumpkin bread recipe is just a few simple ingredients.  No bells and whistles or secret ingredients here, just a classic Fall treat to accompany your morning or afternoon coffee.


1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 teaspoon of baking soda
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 cup solid pack pumpkin puree
1/3 cup of water
1/2 vegetable oil
2 eggs

How to...

1. Grease and flour a 9x5" pan (or use parchment paper, it's easier to remove the bread from the pan).  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Measure flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and spices into a large bowl.  Stir to blend.  In separate bowl, combine pumpkin, water, vegetable oil and eggs.  

3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.  Beat until well combined.  Pour batter into pan.

4. Bake for approximately 1 hour.  (tip: test center of bread with toothpick, if toothpick comes out clean the bread is done).

Speaking of appreciating the simple things.  I heart my cake platter - another classic in my opinion.  It was a Homegoods find a few years back.  But they still have it on the shelves.

I love that I can switch out the little ribbon and dress it up for any holiday or party.  It's Halloween time so get the black ribbon out!

Such a class look.

 It's my turn to bring the mom's a snack at playgroup today.  I hope they like Pumpkin Bread!
