Sourdough Pumpkin Bread has a light pumpkin flavor with that delicious touch of sourdough tang- it’s amazing!
Have you started a sourdough start yet? I wish you would join in the fun cuz it adds a delightful tang to recipes and of course offers other benefits too!
Here’s a good sourdough started recipe from King Arthur Flour with some awesome tips and tricks for taking care of it. It needs a little bit of love in the form of flour and water a couple times a week if it lives out of the fridge. If you keep it in the fridge then once a week will do it!

- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 2/3 cups flour
