Pumpkin Pecan Friendship Bread
Mini Pumpkin Pecan Bread
It may not be Fall, but pumpkin is always a favorite around here.
This is just one more variety of Friendship Bread I’ve made. I’ve posted about the Cinnamon and Chocolate Coconut friendship breads and just couldn’t hold off until Fall to post this!
I combined all the varieties on this printable Friendship Bread page.
For this variety, I replaced the oil with 1 cup pumpkin puree and ½ cup chopped pecans. Sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon sugar in the greased pans and on top of batter. Icing for Pumpkin Bread: ½ cup powdered sugar, ¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice mixed with 3 teaspoons water, add more water for smooth consistency if desired and a few toasted pecans on top.
I baked these mini loafs at 325 degrees and began checking them at 25 minutes. I didn’t want these little guys getting dry!
I absolutely love the fact that you replaced fat with pumpkin puree.
FUnny is I don’t like pumpkin pie, but I love pumpkin cookies, cakes and I’m sure a bite of your pumpkin bread would send me to a happy place. Yummy.
O.K., this virtual friendship thing is not working out so much for me any longer. You keep baking these friendship breads and I my have to try and talk my husband into moving down the street from you. I promise I’ll only come over when you are baking…I’ll bring the coffee or wine if it’s an evening visit 🙂
Paula, if you move down the street, we’d never get out of the kitchen. I could see it now-renovate the whole house to be a kitchen! Murphy beds fold out of the walls for the occasional nap. LOL!!! Would be WONDERFUL!
I say pumpkin all year round
Yes, it’ll be the “new” thing. Libby’s is sure to love it!
So funny… I was born in Lancaster, PA 🙂 Amish Friendship Bread is a thing of delicious beauty and so is meeting a wonderful new friend like you!
You just made my day! I really enjoyed meeting you. I love how us East Coast girls hit it off right away!

I put pumpkin in EVERYTHING – all year long! (I actually have a “pumpkin” section in my recipe file…) I’m so happy to see I’m not alone. This looks delicious and I will definitely be making these little beauties soon. It was so great meeting you this weekend! -Emily
