Spice Bread

Spice-Bread-2-003-text
First things first: there is NO pumpkin in this bread! I know at this time of year that it’s easy to see the word “spice” and automatically associate “pumpkin” with it, but the spice stands alone in this bread. So what is a spice bread exactly? Well, it’s full of 3 delicious fall spices – cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Honestly, when it was baking, all I could think about was Thanksgiving morning. There’s just something about nutmeg and cloves that always transports me right to Thanksgiving.

Anyway, back to the bread. I’ve been eating it for breakfast this week, and it’s just so perfect. A slice is enough to keep me full until lunch, and it’s just perfect for a cozy, chilly morning.
