Pumpkin Spice Bread
If you adore fragrantly spiced treats, this is your recipe. Ginger, cloves and nutmeg combine with pumpkin to make this a perfect addition to Thanksgiving. Having a couple of loaves on hand is a good idea for dessert if you’re expecting lots of family. And compared to turkey it takes a fraction of the time to prepare.
