For the love of pumpkin and its almost Thanksgiving..what more can I ask for other than Pumpkin bread and Pumpkin Pie. I decided to make the pumpkin bread today and my oh my this is a keeper recipe. Its so easy to put together since its a one bowl mix.
The bread is so moist and the aroma of the spices simply filled the air in the house. I think I better get on with the recipe and go cut a slice of the pumpkin bread for me to munch on....
