I love it when Dana hosts our women’s Bible study.  Her home is warm and welcoming.  She has a cool dog and she makes the best, by far, pumpkin bread in the world.

Dana serves her signature sweet bread warm right from the oven in a cute, Bundt-style baking pan in the shape of a pumpkin.  Martha Stewart would be proud.

Recently, as I let a second warm slice of pumpkin perfection melt in my mouth, I decided to ask Dana for the recipe.  I figured it would be beyond my culinary skills…probably an old, family recipe involving double boilers, exotic spices and separated eggs.

Dana just smiled as she shared her “secret” recipe – three ingredients – one step. So simple, even I could dazzle my friends and family with pumpkin bread worthy of the Cooking Channel.

If you need to bring something sweet to a holiday gathering, consider whipping up Dana’s perfect pumpkin bread.  It’s so simple; you won’t even have to write it down.  But here it is just in case!

Dana’s Pumpkin Bread
1 Box Trader Joe’s pumpkin bread mix

Prepare according to the box recipe, but add ½ can of organic, canned pumpkin (also at Trader Joe’s) and a small tub of vanilla Greek yogurt.

Bake and eat. Consider it my gift to you!

Happy Holidays!
Good eating and God’s blessings!
