Gingerbread is great. It has sugar and spice and everything nice. And since pumpkin is nice, it belongs in this bread.
This bread is incredibly moist, mostly thanks to the pumpkin. It also has a nice amount of spice and sugar. You can probably use 100% whole wheat flour if you want, but I haven’t tried that yet.
By the way, you can add some nutmeg or cloves in here if it suites your fancy. I didn’t even think about that when I was making it. Neither did I miss it, but you might.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you all enjoy the bread.
