Pumpkin Bread with mixed nuts and dried fruits [en]

This sweet bread is perfect for the fall season. Pumpkin adds to the sweet richness of this bread. And to make this bread extra flavorsome and wholesome, I’ve added some dried fruits, nuts and spices. Of course you can use which ever combinations you like.



I used almonds, walnuts, cashew nuts and pistachios. And I’ve used dates, dried apricots, sultanas and raisins roughly chopped. And for spices I used cinnamon, caraway seeds and cloves all grounded.



This bread is very moist. You can have it for breakfast, brunch or afternoon tea. It is just perfect.
