This Apple Butter Pumpkin Bread is the ultimate combination of fall flavors all in one bite. A bit of Greek yogurt and plenty of pumpkin make this bread perfectly moist. An easy, brown sugar crumb topping gives this bread a palatable, crunchy texture.
I just love apple butter, but always seem to forget all about it I bought a jar of it last season while apple picking with the kiddos. While cleaning out my fridge, I was overjoyed to see that it hadn’t expired yet. I figured it might as well be put to good use in a nice pumpkin bread.
It just doesn’t get more fall than a combination of apple and pumpkin. I was super excited to actually be able to wear some of my new fall clothes without sweating yesterday. Good thing we don’t need the weather to cooperate to enjoy all of our apple and pumpkin recipes.
Pumpkin really makes a good, moist bread. I just ran into the problem of trying to eat the whole loaf in one day. I recommend doubling the recipe so you have enough to actually enjoy for more than an hour after baking.
I’m going to need another trip to the apple farm this weekend. I’m not even sure if it is still apple season, but I need more apple butter in my life. You could even spread more of it on your Apple Butter Pumpkin Bread. There’s just no such thing as too much!
Here are more reasons to love fall (besides the arrival of boot season).
