The mini loaf is much more cake- like then bread. It can be eaten with a spoon and has hints of pumpkin spice that gives it that delicious winter-comfort feeling. It is definitely most delicious when served warm. *When reserving, wrap bread in heavy foil and reheat in the oven at 350 for 15 min.
The maple sugar glaze gives the pumpkin cake that rich, winter-comfort feeling that makes it feel "homey." This icing can be whipped up with just 2 common ingredients in your house and can be used on nearly anything. From pancakes to dipped in pretzels, it is sure to taste delicious.
