To celebrate the beginning of pumpkin season and my wife Zikki’s birthday I made a chocolate pumpkin bread. The balance between the nutty notes of the pumpkin, the sourness of the orange juice and the sweetness of the chocolate is just superb! It’s super easy to make. It takes about an hour from start to bite. I’m encouraging you to give it a shot, this cake is 🤩!
