Ok guys, I know the last time I posted was awhile ago and it was another pumpkin spice recipe… BUT I still consider November pumpkin spice season, don’t you? Really, when does it end? I’m going to say once the snow is gone, and that takes quite awhile around here.
Like my fruit cake recipe, this pumpkin spice bread is adapted from my raisin cake recipe. I truly love the recipe and how tweaking a few ingredients can create a whole new treat. This version took me a little longer to perfect BUT I finally did it, and I’m kind of obsessed!
I love having a piece out of the oven topped with coconut oil or even ghee and along side a hot tea. Store it in the fridge or freezer (if you’d like to save it for later). It’s great cold out of the fridge but reheats well too!
