Pumpkin seems to be the flavor du jour, if you will, in our house right now. This time of year when the weather cools down and changes...gets a little dark and damp... i want to bake. Something. Anything. This day it was Amish Pumpkin Bread. This was a recipe given to me as part of a wedding gift. Yet, it was not until about a year or two ago that i re-discovered it and how amazing it really is.
I love the part where i add the spices...all the different colors together looks so pretty to me.
This is a very moist and tasty...spicy bread. I think everyone should give this a try!!!
