Pumped-up Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin is one of fall’s favorite flavors, and this huge batch of bread will fix your craving whether you’re baking for a bake sale, a party, or stocking your freezer up with easy snacks. This sturdy batter can be turned readily into bread, muffins or cookies to make serving fit the need of the occasion.

Freezer Tip: Wrap cooled baked goods tightly in foil and store in a plastic freezer bag. They’ll be good to go for three months.
