Harvest Pumpkin Loaf

I can’t believe it’s already the last week of September! What I really can’t believe is that this is the first week in Ohio when the weather actually feels like fall. Naturally, I was really itching to get into the kitchen and bake something that has all the fall flavors. Some sort of bread is what I was gearing towards so I thought let’s make some yummy pumpkin bread! I love this recipe because it’s not too rich, but has a natural sweetness to it from the maple syrup and spices!
