Fall Bread Recipes
Autumn is a wonderful time of the year for baking. Nothing feels better than walking inside after a cold day and heating up the house with your oven while smelling delicious scents. And quick breads are a great comfort food for fall. Quick breads frequently include fruits, vegetables and nuts so it is easy to incorporate classic fall flavors into the fall bread recipes. In this post I’ve compiled a list of quick breads using many traditional fall flavors such as pumpkin, cinnamon, apple, maple, cranberry and gingerbread. Some of these fall bread recipes are more like dessert and some are meant to go along with dinner. Some are in between so you will have to try them out this autumn and see for yourself!
1. Pumpkin Ribbon Bread
From Simply Stacie
Nothing is more fall like than pumpkin! This tasty twist on traditional pumpkin bread adds a ribbon of cream cheese filling in the middle of the loaf, so it’s a great surprise when your guest cuts it open. I love the flavor of cream cheese and pumpkin in the fall, and this bread also has a hint of orange to keep things interesting.
2. Caramel Apple Pecan Bread
from Upstate Ramblings
Apples, caramel and pecans? Yes! The caramel sauce drizzled over this apple bread makes it a delicious addition to any holiday dessert table. Plus with a prep time of only ten minutes this is a quick an easy recipe to help simplify things during a time of year when you are already doing lots of cooking.
3. Cinnamon Streusel Zucchini Bread
from Mom and the Boys
Zucchini bread is a great way to try to sneak some veggies by your kids – they might never know unless you spill the beans. This zucchini bread also has a delicious streusel on top with nuts and brown sugar, so even if the kids notice the green flecks of zucchini they probably won’t care!
4. Bourbon Banana Bread
This is an interesting way to change up your standard banana bread into an intriguing and different bread. In addition to using bourbon to flavor the banana bread this this recipe also calls for a bourbon glaze to add some sweetness (and an excuse for more bourbon). It makes the banana bread more decadent and moist!
5. The Best Cranberry Orange Bread Recipe
from Play Party Plan
Cranberries are another traditional fall favorite, especially for Thanksgiving. This bread has beautiful colors – the red cranberries contrast so well with the bright orange zest. The two also pair very well together with the tart cranberry and sweet citrus flavor of orange. This one will be the star on any holiday dinner table!
Probably one of the most classic fall and holiday flavors, this is a gingerbread flavored bread! This dense bread smells delicious and is best served warm or cold with a dash of butter on top. Plus the house will smell amazing while it bakes.
from Creative Southern Home
This is a classic autumn recipe for pumpkin bread with some delicious spices thrown in – nutmeg, cloves, allspice and cinnamon. It would be perfect for Thanksgiving dinner or a cold day when you want a hearty (but still delicious) snack! This traditional recipe really lets the flavors of the pumpkin and spices shine through.
8. Maple Nut Bread Recipe
Maple syrup is a great seasonal ingredient, plus it makes your bread very moist. This recipe calls for maple syrup soaked walnuts, which sounds so good! I love having nuts in my bread because it adds texture and a little bit of crunch to the bread.
9. Easy Cinnamon Apple Sweet Quick Bread Recipe
from Melanie Cooks
Apples and cinnamon are two great fall flavors, what could be better than combining them? I love the crispness of apples combined with the soft texture of bread, and this recipe has real apples baked into it.
10: Chocolate Pumpkin Bread
from Life Family Joy
As I got to the end of this post I realized it needed some chocolate! So this is another pumpkin bread recipe but…. chocolate! Pumpkin and chocolate are two flavors that are meant to be combined, but instead of just adding chocolate chips to pumpkin bread this recipe has chocolate throughout. My mouth is watering!
from Amanda’s Cookin’
More chocolate, this time with zucchini bread! The zucchini keeps the bread moist and the chocolate keeps it delicious. This bread uses both cocoa powder and chocolate chips to make a tasty and moist bread topped off with powdered sugar.
