Any recipe with pumpkin and cinnamon is one for me. I’m such a sucker for autumn desserts. If you’re a carb lover then this is one for you too. French bread, pumpkin and cinnamon and warm, oh my goodness! Heavenly scent and heavenly taste.
I ate way too much of this so I don’t think I’ll make it often. Willpower, what’s that?
