IMG_20150815_9

Autumn is almost here, and that means one thing in the Clark household….PUMPKIN SPICE SEASON! But how can I enjoy the pumpkin season as a Banter? I’m creative in the kitchen…right?  This is a challenge I can handle…right? Absolutely I said! So I slaved in the kitchen for HOURS to come up with the PERFECT PUMPKIN SPICE bread. (ok, truth is, it took under 10 minutes to prepare and I got the recipe right on the first try)
It’s delicious plain or toasted with a little butter, or better still, as french toast!
No matter how you decide to eat it, I sincerely hope you ENJOY IT!
