Pumpkin bread


I am sitting here with a cup of green tea called Tribute to the Immortals and enjoy a slice of this delicious cake. I received this recipe from a friend and adopted it. I should do my Italian homework but I think I rather have another piece of this wonderful cake. I am sure you will love it!
