The first day of fall is just days away, and with that comes the celebration of all things warm, spiced and comforting. What better way to kick off the season than with a loaf of soft, slightly sweet and deliciously fragrant pumpkin bread? We’ve rounded up some of Food Network’s top pumpkin bread recipes, each a cinch to prepare and filled with classic autumn flavor.

This double-batch recipe combines unsweetened pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices to create two hearty loaves.

The secret to Anne’s seasonal pudding is letting the bread sit for 15 minutes before baking so that it absorbs the spiced pumpkin custard and becomes soft and moist.

Bobby’s homemade pumpkin bread stars in his crave-worthy pudding, baked with a creamy vanilla custard and topped with a caramel apple sauce made with whole cloves and ginger.

Use rustic French bread, creamy pumpkin and decadent whipped cream to make this sinfully sweet pudding, best served with a buttery rum-laced sauce.

Loaded with fresh pumpkin, crunchy pumpkin seeds and warm cinnamon, Alton’s top-rated bread is easily baked into a single large loaf or many smaller muffins.
