Yesterday I received several Twitters declaring yesterday "Pumpkin Spice Latte Day."  While I chose not to imbibe on the suggested $4 cup of coffee, I did get to thinking about the flatteringly autumnlike flavor of pumpkin.

Janelle E. sent in something of some similar spicitude... a recipe for The Best Pumpkin Bread Ever.  Looks like a worthy fall-time pursuit.  Recipe on the jump. 

Janelle's recipe:

The Best Pumpkin Bread Ever
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 4oz pkgs instant coconut pudding
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 & 1/4 cup oil
5 eggs
2 cups canned pumpkin (Approximately one can)

Combine flour, sugar, pudding mix, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Combine oil, eggs, pumpkin in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Add flour mixture. Mix well. Spread in greased 2 - 5x9 loaf pans or Bundt Pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
This is fabulous when topped with cream cheese icing, but it’s pretty awesome by itself too!!

Janelle sent me a little more information...

On a note that I should have put in it, I usually add more cinnamon, grate some fresh nutmeg, and put in some pumpkin pie spice, but I've never really measured the extras.  Sorry for not putting that in there, but I've been making the recipe for 10+ years and just tend to get a good smell going, mix, and bake.  Hope everyone enjoys!

I'm going to have to try that out.  Do you have a recipe you'd like to share with Eat Arkansas readers?  Drop me a line at

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
