I’ve been making this recipe for many years now. One of my favorite ways to make it is using a mini loaf pan, so that I can share the yummy pumpkin bread with my family or friends.

Nordic Ware also makes these beautiful loaf pans perfect for autumn. Depending on how you use this recipe, you may need to use varying sizes of loaf pans. 

Also, if using a decorative pan, you may need to trim the bottom of the bread so that it will lay flat. When I bake bread in my Harvest Bounty Loaf pan, I almost always need to trim the rounded “top” before turning it out onto a platter.
