This is my favorite pumpkin recipe of the season... Adapted from a pumpkin bread recipe i found on Allrecipes.com, my version is more like spicy gingerbread with the added richness of pumpkin!! It is wonderful with a cup of tea and keeps well in the fridge for up to two weeks. Also makes a nice gift! For muffins, reduce cooking time by 30 minutes (i like to add pecans and raisins to the batter for chewy-crunchy muffins, yum!)--. Enjoy!
