This is one of those delicious fall recipes that fill the house with a wonderful, spicy fragrance. So good on a cold, crisp day to bite into all that warm, spicy goodness! I developed this combination of ingredients to use what I happened to have on hand when I felt the chill of winter coming on and with that urge to bake. I hope you enjoy!

How To Make apple cider pumkin bread

  • 1
    Cream the wet ingredients all together
  • You can use any instant Spiced Apple Cider drink mix, brand doesn't matter.
    Sift the dry ingredients together including the Instant Hot Apple Cider Drink Mix
  • 3
    Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat for 2 minutes. Stir in the pumpkin seeds and craisins.
  • I used 1 cup of batter for each mini loaf pan.
    Pour batter into 9 greased mini loaf pans or two 9X5 loaf pans. (I spray some Pam in each pan but you can use whatever you like to grease them) Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes for the mini pans and 1 hour for the larger loaf pans. Use a cake tester or toothpick to test for doneness.
  • This recipe makes 9 mini loaves of moist, sweet and delicious bread!
    Mix the powdered sugar and milk into a thick consistancy and drizzle over the loaves and top with a few pumpkin seeds and craisins. Omit this step if your plan on freezing for future use and add it later when you are ready to serve. This recipe freezes well and I usually double wrap each loaf.

    NOTE: you can add any kind of nuts or dried fruits in lieu of the pumpkin seeds and craisins. I have used chopped pecans and dates, walnuts and raisins, chopped dried mango and pineapple with pecans etc. Use your imagination and have fun!
