In the style of the use-only-one-pan quickbread and cake mixes like the popular Snackin’ Cake, the makers of Bisquick came out with this easy one-pan pumpkin bread recipe back in 1983.

It uses the baking mix in place of the flour, salt, baking soda, and some of the fat (there’s oil in the recipe, and shortening is already in the Bisquick).

That means you need only 7 ingredients to make a quick, delicious and cinnamony pumpkin bread that’s as good for breakfast as it is for dessert!
