Pumpkin Gingerbread

I would like to say that I'll share something with you that isn't pumpkin but that really isn't the truth. :) Although it is starting to wind down a bit. I think there are only 4 or 5 more pumpkin posts coming up. It's okay to let the tears flow... It will be a sad time when pumpkin mania ends!

This is a great quick bread recipe that combines two of my favorite fall flavors - pumpkin and gingerbread. I think it was a perfect pairing of sweet pumpkin bread and spicy gingerbread. SO GOOD! I loved it and am glad to have a few mini loaves stashed away in the freezer!

I love the idea of a pumpkin gingerbread. I had seen this recipe on that site, but didn't know how good it was. Thanks for making it and letting me know. Now I'll have to try it as soon as I go get some pumpkin.

I've made pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin biscuits, pumpkin pizza dough, and pumpkin bread with chocolate, it's a pretty safe assumption that I will be making this!! I love gingerbread too!

How did I miss this? Are you holding out on me? What's the deal? ;)

I love gingerbread as much as I love pumpkin - so I am making this today!
