I love this recipe because it's so fall-ish. You can see that the bread turns out kind of orange and it's great with just butter or add pumpkin butter. You can use it for toast, sandwhiches or just sliced right off the loaf. I can't keep this around the house. We have a cut loaf in the fridge and Sam made two more today and he already cut one of the new ones! Go figure!
It's really easy to make. I hope you enjoy it! If you try it!!!
Bakin' it up in the Tundra,
