Some days it’s a warm slice of sweet bread that makes everyone a bit happier. I love all things pumpkin so I am excited to share one of my many favorites! The pumpkin bread is moist and wonderful all by itself. But, if you want the bread to be a little over the top then add the frosting and a nut garnish on top. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
