This recipe is everything you want in a pumpkin bread – a moist interior, light crumb, crispy top, and spiced undertones. We subbed fresh turmeric root in place of ginger for an antioxidant-rich boost. The recipe can be easily adaptable to any pumpkin or winter squash puree – simply half it, de-seed it, and roast it facing down at 425 degrees until the flesh is soft enough to puree. If you make a big batch, you can always store it in the freezer to add to soups, stuff in raviolis, and of course, bake into a batch of bread. :)
