I had pumpkin to use up so I roasted it, mashed it and was left wondering what I would make. I decided on seeing what pumpkin bread I could create thinking it might be nice for breakfast or just a little snack topped with chobani yoghurt infused with vanilla and cinnamon and covered in berries. YUMMMMMMM! Its just cooled enough for me to cut it and taste test it and OMG!!! Its so yummy. My older 2 who are still awake even got to taste test it and they loved it too!! So I will share it with everyone….
