Pumpkin Spice Loaf with Cinnamon Frosting

pumpkinloaf.jpg

Ola! This one goes down in my books as hella supreme. Pumpkin is the bee's knees right now, which makes sense, since it's delicious and it goes great in just about everything. You know what goes great on top of anything pumpkiny (that's a word right?), cinnamon.

Enter Pumpkin Spice Loaf with Cinnamon Frosting. I'll probably make this one for myself again right after I post this, since I had to share the last one all in one sitting with my family. I'm not complaining though, good food should be enjoyed in good company. I'm blessed to have a loving family who I'm willing to share my treats with. I hope this recipe brings together you and yours.
