Pumpkin Cornbread


Now that the weather is really cooling off I can only think of one thing: pumpkin.

Okay, okay, that’s not the only thing I think of but it does have me craving all sorts of pumpkin flavored things! Lattes, cookies, bread, and the like.

This was my first time making pumpkin cornbread and I can’t believe I haven’t made it sooner! It’s perfectly sweet, prefectly savory, and is as good for breakfast as it is with chili.

Also, the cornbread is fairly moist and keeps well for several days–if it lasts that long!
