Tasty Pumpkin Loaf

Tasty pumpkin loaf

This pumpkin loaf is unassuming, not too sweet, and subtly delicious. The recipe calls for butter, which makes it luscious. However, if you wish a lower fat version, I’ve substituted oil for butter, and been happy with the results.  

It is great for breakfast or with your afternoon tea.
