I can not reveal my recipe for pumpkin bread, but I do have a super easy and really good one that I CAN share!
I like mine with chocolate chips...as you can see from the pictures of the batter. I make this every year for Thanksgiving morning. We eat this while we watch the parade and I sift through all of the Black Friday sale ads!
In addition the pumpkin bread, I have included recipes for the cream cheese frosting, chai sugar and cinnamon sugar.
Give it a try and tell me what you think! If you add chocolate chips, add about 1/2 cup to the recipe.
Easy Pumpkin Bread
1 box white cake mix
1 cup canned pumpkin (or fresh puree)

Preheat oven to 350*.
Spray 2 loaf pans with butter spray and then lightly coat them with chai sugar. In a bowl add cake mix, pumpkin, egg, milk, apple sauce and spices. Mix well with wire whisk, removing all lumps. Pour evenly into two pans. Sprinkle chai sugar over the top of each. Bake for 60 minutes.
