Steal-Good Pumpkin Bread

Steal-Good Pumpkin Bread

When my grandmother visited a few weeks ago, I was determined to make pumpkin bread for her.  She loves it, but since she lives alone now, she rarely cooks or bakes for herself.

I made a batch of this pumpkin bread, and we ate some for breakfast one day, and a bit more with some veggie beef soup for lunch after church.  My Big Helper kept laughing, because each time she asked for another piece, my grandmother would pretend to wrap it into her napkin and slip it into her pocket!

We had to wrap the rest up and send it home with her.  When your guests like something enough to jokingly steal it and take some home, what else can you do??  (Of course, we didn’t mind.  Sending the second loaf home with her was the plan all along – but it was good to know that it met with her approval.)

We took this bread to Disney with us for breakfast.  I made it and froze it in advance, wrapped well, and it tasted great even after being frozen and transported so many miles.  
 
This would make great make-ahead Christmas gifts!
