Can you ever put too much cream cheese icing on a pumpkin loaf?
I know I say it a lot but you must make this gluten-free apple pumpkin loaf. It is super moist and has the flavours of apple, pumpkin, walnuts and spices.
Have company coming over for brunch? Serve this loaf alongside a bowl of fresh fruit, parfaits of yogurt and lots of coffee and tea and you are set.
Make this loaf the night before and all you have to do is icing it the next day.
