Recipes: Fake it and Make it Starbucks Pumpkin Bread

Since the weather is cooling down, it’s time to jump headfirst into pumpkin-everything season.  The other day I decided to make some pumpkin bread, it happens to be one of my favorite treats to eat this time of year. After searching through many recipes, I found a copycat Starbucks pumpkin bread recipe. Did you really think I’d make any other kind of pumpkin bread?

I doubled the original recipe and tweaked it a bit. With all of my substitutions and added ingredients, I ended up with: a loaf of pumpkin bread (in a bread pan), 24 mini pumpkin muffins, and 12 large muffins. You may make more or less depending on the sizes of your pans.

P.S The taste is AMAZING and the breads are so moist that they melt in your mouth!
