I love anything and everything butterscotch, so I thought, "What the heck. Add it to pumpkin bread." It turned out to be lovely! It's even better when you toast a slice. :) Also, I used applesauce and egg whites to make it healthier, but you can use vegetable oil and whole eggs and it will still be just as good.
