It’s the weekend, and I almost never post on the weekend.  I’ve been meaning to share this recipe with you all week, but I’ve been busy with life and creating all week, and I thought this might be the perfect inspiration you need to make this pumpkin ginger loaf and enjoy it this week for breakfast.

This is a very yummy loaf.  It’s pumpkin-y, and ginge-ry, and so moist.  The walnuts add a little crunch.  It feels like fall, in all the best ways.  And, it makes two loaves, so you can enjoy it twice as long -or freeze one for later.  You could make it with walnuts like I did, or try pecans or green pumpkin seeds.

And then, you have to make the honey cinnamon butter -have to.

I didn’t get a chance to freeze the second loaf yet.  Every time I make it, we eat it before I can manage to put one away for later.
