Cinnamon Swirled Pumpkin Bread

  • It is a cold gloomy day here.  One of those days you want to curl up on the couch with a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate and a big fluffy blanket.

    I like days like this if they don’t happen day after day.

    I need sunlight to survive, but the occasional gloomy day puts me a baking mood.

    This cinnamon swirled pumpkin bread was just the thing.  It filled the whole house with wonderful fall aromas!

    I love the smell of cinnamon.  I am one of those you will find just opening the cinnamon bottle and inhaling.  I know I’m weird.  But I can’t be the only one!?  Right!?
