Hey, it’s Jenn from Deliciously Sprinkled back with a delicious fall favorite. Nothing tastes more like fall than fresh baked pumpkin goods. I’ve always loved just about anything with pumpkin in it, so I decided to switch things up to the traditional pumpkin bread with this Pumpkin Sweet Potato Bread.

This Pumpkin Sweet Potato bread is incredibly easy to make.  In fact, it doesn’t even require a mixer, just a bowl and spatula and a bread loaf pan. Oh and let’s not forget to talk about the maple vanilla glaze, it adds just the right amount of sweetness, top with chopped pecans and you have one delicious bread.
