It’s not fall without a loaf of pumpkin bread, and if there’s anyone that knows a thing or two about pumpkin it’s me! This easy and delicious pumpkin bread recipe wraps everything we love about fall into one loaf!

There’s nothing I love more on a chilly fall day then baking a loaf of pumpkin bread and having the smell fill the house with warm and cozy vibes! Baking this cinnamon apple pumpkin bread will do just that, plus it makes for the perfect treat with coffee or tea.

Pumpkin and apple picking are definitely two of my favorite fall activities, and this loaf combines the delicious flavors of both into one super moist and fluffy pumpkin bread! Not doing gluten? No problem. This pumpkin bread can also be easily modified to be gluten free.

The apples on top of each slice are spiced to perfection and complement the super moist pumpkin bread oh so well! This loaf has a double layer of apples, the first later is baked into the batter and the second layer is sprinkled on top after baking. Trust me — it’s the best!

I love making different variations of pumpkin bread, and I know you’ll love this cinnamon apple pumpkin one just as much as I do!
