Autumn is here and so is the cold weather. This makes it the perfect time to bake a warm Pecan Pumpkin Loaf to fill your home with a cinnamon aroma and celebrate the last few days of Sukkot (the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles) with your family and friends.
Also, this recipe tastes wonderful with chocolate chips added, or substituted for the pecans. Try this recipe and celebrate the fall season!
