Guest Post: Easy Pumpkin Spice Bread with Janae

Hello! My name is Janae and over at my blog I love to do and write about both easy and challenging DIY projects and recipes. Honestly, my favorite recipes are the ones that involve some really simple ingredients. This recipe I'm posting about today  is one of those.

Pumpkin has made its way back into the menu at every restaurant, bakery, and coffee shop. That's one of the many things about this season that I'm thrilled about. Pumpkin is one of those amazing foods that can be used as way more than just a flavor. It can replace oil, butter, eggs, or all of the additional ingredients in the directions on the back of a box of cake mix. This is one of my favorite recipes using pumpkin. It's both delicious and easy as can be.

Easy Pumpkin Spice Bread 1 box of spice cake mix 1 can of pumpkin Mix pumpkin and cake mix thoroughly. Pour into a greased 8" x 8" pan. Bake according to directions on back of box, usually about 350 degrees for 28-33 minutes. Try adding any nuts or chocolate chips in as desired before pouring into baking dishes. Also try topping it with cream cheese and powdered sugar, a simple sugar glaze, Nutella, or anything else that strikes your fancy.

This stuff is good as it is. It's amazing with pecans and milk chocolate chips. Spread cream cheese over the top and it's decadent. It's super moist and some-what dense, making it pretty filling. That doesn't stop me from eating half the pan in one sitting though.
A couple of tips: It may seem like the pumpkin isn't mixing very well at first. Just keep stirring. It will gradually mix together until it looks kind of doughy.
If you don't have an 8" x 8" pan, it's okay. Try using bread pans, a small casserole dish, or a muffin tin. Just adjust the cooking time to whatever is recommended on the box.
Mmmm... It's great for dessert, breakfast, brunch, or a decadent snack. It's my favorite dish to contribute to a potluck or even Thanksgiving dinner. Try it out! You won't be disappointed!
