Tasty Tuesday: Fair Trade Pumpkin Bread

Fall! This is my most favorite time of the year. Well, actually October to January 1st is my most favorite time of the year.  I adore this time of year’s holidays and I adore sweater weather.  In San Diego this is great sweater weather time even into January! Since this time of year seems best fit with comfort I would like to share some delicious comfort fall related fair trade recipes in the next several Tasty Tuesday posts.

This week I bring you some fair trade pumpkin bread with walnuts.  The recipe is a family favorite. I added walnuts because I had some extras left over from another recipe, plus I just really enjoy them.  And I used applesauce instead of eggs because I prefer not to use eggs when possible; it’s just a personal preference.

Enjoy – Dawn
