Fall is all about cozy flavors, warming spices and plenty of fun baking projects. Make the most of the season with the following quick breads, which include pumpkin, banana and maple-inspired recipes. You’ll have plenty of autumnal eats to enjoy and your kitchen will smell amazing, too!

Sweet bananas and earthy pumpkin are a match made in heaven, especially when combined in a tender, subtly-sweet quick bread. Sprinkle the top with pepitas before baking for a simple, wonderful crunch.

There’s a lot to love about this mighty quick bread. Pears and cranberries lend a tart flavor that is delicately balanced by toasted walnuts and a sweet vanilla glaze. Nutmeg, cinnamon and a dash of orange zest up the coziness of this fall-flavored snack.

Bananas pull double duty in this recipe: you’ll mash them up in the batter of the bread and slice one on top for an easy, elegant design. Serve a thick slice for breakfast, dessert or even as an extra-special snack.

When thinking of fall flavors, don’t overlook maple. Genuine maple syrup adds tons of deep flavor to your favorite comfort foods, like this pancake-flavored loaf. You’ll incorporate plenty of syrup into the batter, but go ahead and drizzle a little on top, too.

For maximum reward with minimal effort, try this low-lift pumpkin bread. You only need cake mix, pumpkin pie filling and an egg to make a sweet, light and tender loaf. Guests will adore being served a slice — and they’ll never guess how easy it was!
