Walnut Pumpkin Bread ~{Guest post from Karen Gentry}

Karen Gentry is back from Where Flours Bloom with a great recipe for us to try just in time for Thanksgiving Day!!

Doesn’t this bread look amazing!? I actually have a confession to make; this week I couldn’t wait until we posted her recipe like I usually do. This week, I went ahead and made the Walnut Pumpkin Bread BEFORE we posted it, and I can honestly tell you, it IS as good as it looks!! We’ve been enjoy it each morning with a cup of hot Apple Cider (another one of my weaknesses in the fall 🙂

Not only is it delicious, it’s really easy to make as well! I actually doubled the recipe and made two loaves- one to enjoy now and one I hoped to freeze for next week, only it never did make it to the freezer! 🙂

Here’s Karen to tell you all about it:


I love this recipe. It’s a delicious and simple recipe for moist and fragrant pumpkin bread. I love to smell this bread baking in the oven. I hope you give this one a try!

  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ½ cups Oil
