This came out super moist and we had a difficult time waiting for it to cool because it smelled so good! We scoffed up half this bread before I got a chance to photograph it. This was wonderful topped with some Pumpkin Spiced Cream Cheese! I also have a Pumpkin Bread with Pepitas (Seeds) and Pumpkin Nut Muffins.

Baking is truly a science. Remaking cakes and breads to make them healthier is not always as easy as remaking a pot of soup or a casserole. So whenever I am experimenting with baking, my fingers are crossed the whole time.
