“First published in Family Fun magazine Oct.09 edition. Great alternative to pumpkin bread. Taste great w/ vanilla ice cream, caramel cider sauce or just caramel ice-cream topping. Also can enjoy plain. Great way to sneak some veggies to your kids! Recipe calls for sugar, but try using a sugar alternative for a more healthier snack.”
