Do you love pumpkin flavoured goodies? Do you want to eat them all year round, not just in the autumn? Well, you and I agree on that πŸ™‚ I made this Pumpkin Bread recipe a few weeks ago because I ran out of bananas and I had some leftover pumpkin in the fridge. A little tweaking and it turned out pretty darn good.

If you are the kind of person that wants to eat this as breakfast or an after school snack then this is perfect for you. If you want to eat it as a dessert, you can increase the sweet factor by adding some streusel topping and extra glaze. My family was pleased with this Pumpkin Bread, and I think you will be too.
