    I am giving this a thumbs up because I LOVE pumpkin bread and yes, you have to use sugar in this recipe lol. I’ve been making pumpkin bread for ages and in fact, may do it today! Thanks.

      Pumpkin bread is my favorite too! I also love zucchini bread. I shredded and froze a bunch of zucchini from our garden to make bread this winter. 🙂

    I like pumpkin anything, pretty much. They should freeze pretty well (at least the unfrosted ones). That is what is nice about pumpkin goods – they stay moist after freezing!

    No Halloween tradition. When we lived in IL, we would get between 75 and 100 trick or treaters at our house, so our tradition was to bring home Chinese food that night and eat it in between answering the door LOL!

    Now in a smaller town, not as many kids, so we can cook dinner.

      I make cupcakes out of half the batter then a loaf with the rest and I froze that pumpkin loaf for later. And less temptation in the house!

      We used to get a ton of trick or treaters at our house but last year we didn’t have hardly any. And that was a bummer because we had a ton of candy. 🙁

    You could cut the calories even more by only using half the oil and the other half applesauce.
    My favorite Halloween treat is Mounds candy bars!

      What a great idea! Thank you so much. I’ll try that next time.
