Pumpkin Bread with Nutella Swirl


A family favorite for the holidays! It’s light, flavorful, and reminds me of Nutella sandwiches from my childhood. One bite and you know the holidays are coming (Elizabeth Curcio, Oak Ridge, NJ)

Mix flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, cloves and salt; gradually stir into the pumpkin mixture until combined. Transfer 1/2 cup batter to each prepared pan. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of Nutella over the batter. Repeat layers; cut the dough with a knife to swirl. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
