Pumpkin Apple Bread | The Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com
When my home is filled with the heavenly scent of cinnamon, ginger and clove, I know that fall has truly arrived. These spices can certainly be used throughout the year, but there is something warming about pumpkin spices dancing through the air as a loaf of pumpkin bread bakes in the oven.

There is no shortage of pumpkins at this time of year, but I find that canned pumpkin is a more consistent ingredient in baking recipes. I always have my cupboard stocked with at least a few cans of organic pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) to bake with.

Here’s the shocker: did you know that canned pumpkin puree is not always pumpkin? Pumpkin is often substituted with other squash with a smoother texture and sweeter flesh like butternut or Hubbard. I’m a big fan of all winter squash so I’m happy to make this bread from a squash by any name.
