Pumpkin Cornbread

Recipe by Whisper

What could be more Thanksgiving than pumpkin and cornbread? I make this for every Thanksgiving meal (and other times as well), and everyone loves it. It has only a very subtle pumpkin flavor. I have thought about adding more pumpkin for a stronger flavor, but we love it too much the way it is! Reheat leftovers in the microwave and serve with pumpkin butter and tea or coffee. This doesn't last long in my house!

This was very good. I made two batches and used one in my cornbread stuffing and it was a hit!
