Looks delicious! We are big pumpkin bread lovers around here. I have never tried it with ginger, I think that will change soon!

I feel like you did this post just for me! ;-)
Thank you for sharing your recipe.

I'm going to carve out a little time this afternoon to make this.
It's a blustery autumn day on this side of the mountains - and this will be the perfect treat.

Thank you for the recipe. Do you always use buttermilk or have you tried adding a little vinegar to regular milk? I always wonder if there is a difference in taste.

I always use 1 cup milk + vinegar!
