Nothing says fall quite like a slice of warm pumpkin bread, straight out of the oven. Our egg-free recipe amps up the flavor with canned pumpkin pie filling (instead of regular ol’ canned pumpkin), molasses, and ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. The resulting loaf is wonderfully dense, but bakes through entirely in the center and slices easily once it cools just a bit. Quick breads like this one tend to freeze well, wrapped tightly in plastic or placed in a sealed container, but we doubt you’ll have many slices leftover. Serve with pumpkin coffee or apple cider to experience maximum autumn.
