Caramel Glazed Pumpkin Bread

IMG_5220

Autumn is such a lovely season, and perhaps my favorite.  It’s filled with magic, crisp cool air, leaves rustling in the wind, delicious fruits & flavors of the season. Personally, I look forward to spending time baking, and making many of our favorite recipes.  Curling up with a good book (every autumn a must read for me is – The October Country by Ray Bradbury, and I always have the lines of To Autumn by Keats on the tip of my tongue). I love slowing down the pace from the hectic summer, and spending time enjoying my family and reflecting on our many blessings.

This recipe is perfect for enjoying with your family on a chilly fall morning, or gifting to someone special.  It is my favorite pumpkin bread ever!  The caramel glaze enhances this delicious spicy moist wonderful bread, and makes it extraordinary.  Happy Autumn!
