Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you are excited as my kids are, lol. This time of year my kids are hyped up on sugar, especially the little one who has a sweet tooth like mom. Speaking of sweet tooths, let’s talk about this wonderfully sweet butterscotch pumpkin bread. It’s incredibly easy to make and while it’s baking, it will fill your house with the most intoxicating aroma of butterscotch and pumpkin spice.

This recipe begins with flour, pumpkin spice, baking soda and salt tossed together in a large bowl. Then you whisk together some oil, pumpkin puree, sugar and eggs. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until almost combined.

Tip: Fold in your add-ins when there is still some dry flour left in your batter to avoid over-mixing.

Spoon the batter into a prepared loaf pan. Bake for about an hour. Once your kitchen starts to smell like a bakery, it’s a great time to relax and take in some deep breaths. Maybe do some mindfulness exercises (I don’t know). Just enjoy the smell.
