honey whole wheat pumpkin spice bread

Don’t say I didn’t warn you about my squash obsession! I’ve had this recipe on my mind for a few days and was pretty darn excited to make it this morning. It’s been rainy and chilly in San Diego and baking bread sounded like the perfect way to start my weekend.

I’m currently blogging from a new to me coffee shop a few minutes from campus and I am in love. It is about as hipster as it gets near SDSU, but so far it is gold. I plan on returning very soon/ getting a job here asap.

I ordered a large latte and was surprised at how big it was. Aka I’m going to be having some caffeine issues in a bit. Stay tuned.

Anywayyyy…..back to the recipe. Pumpkin bread. Enough said.
