Take your pumpkin bread loaf out of the freezer and set it in the fridge to slowly thaw during the day until you need it. If you do not have a couple hours for your bread tot haw in the fridge you can take the bread out, unwrap it and set it on a plate in room temperature. The bread will be ready within the hour. Warm in oven at 250 for 15-20 minutes if you want it warm. 

This pumpkin bread recipe will stay good in the freezer for 3-6 months.

If you are baking with all-purpose flour be sure to not overmix the batter once flour is in. Mixing in your dry ingredients slowly and until just combined will help keep your bread lite and fluffy. Overmixing can lead to a dense tough loaf. 

I have not tried this recipe with any substitutions and have only baked with the recipe card above. There are many substitutions that may result in great bread but I have not tried.
