Pumpkin Gingerbread Loaf

As we dive further into Autumn, the call of holiday baking gets strong.  Sweet spices like cinnamon, ginger and the potent kick of molasses bring a comforting smell that makes you cozy from the inside out.  When you mix that with pumpkin, you are in for a treat that you’ll want to enjoy as breakfast, a snack or gift to others to spread the love.  This amazing Pumpkin Gingerbread Loaf is definitely one of my Fall favorites and is as moist as it gets.  No butter or spread needed…but always welcomed if that’s your jam!
