As fall starts, I love to start making anything with pumpkin. For me, it’s one of the best parts of the cooling days…all the yummy baked pumpkin goods! I love my home filled with the smell of pumpkin pie spice. Is there a more warming and happy smell? 🙂 This Pumpkin Zucchini Bread recipe has just that!
Pumpkin Zucchini Bread
Something many of us tend to have at the end of the summer season is a pile of zucchini and a family that is worn out of zucchini filled foods. So here’s something a little different! This Pumpkin Zucchini Bread will give them the yummy pumpkin flavor we are all craving this time of year plus an extra dose of vegetables AND a great way to use up more zucchini! Or if you are like me…in the fall I also like to give baked goods to my neighbors and I think this bread would be perfect for that!
This is also a great bread to make any time in the winter if you’ve preserved pumpkin and frozen zucchini. Just for something a little different! If you are looking for a recipe for a more traditional pumpkin bread you might want to check out my Easy Pumpkin Bread recipe.
