Pumpkin Spice Loaf

Warm, Just out of the oven is usually my favorite treat. And if the baked goods are made in the fall/winter seasons, they taste even more yummy in my opinion.

Pumpkin Spice Loaf is one of those which I make on the wintry afternoons and there are no leftovers by next day. My plans of saving them for afternoon snacks for next week doesnt usally pan out. But, I am happy to repeat this treat over and over.

I usually like to use whole wheat flour or oat flour or wheat germ or anything to substitute regular flour in baked goods. But this loaf is one of the few goodies I make with all purpose flour alone as I dont want to make it too heavy.

Also the addition of the roasted pumpkin seeds on top and in the batter gives that extra crunchy yumminess along with nutrition.

You can devour these loafs as-is or with some butter or with even more pumpkin seeds as my husband does.
