It may be one of the hottest days of the year today, thanks Indian Summer but I’m all ready for autumn with this deeply spiced and insanely tender Pumpkin Spice Swirl Quickbread. Sweet and spicy, this bread has a heap of Pumpkin Pie Spice within a pumpkin puree batter and for an even sweeter inclusion I created a pumpkin pie spice sugar swirl which runs throughout the loaf. It’s even Gluten-Free too.
