Pumpkin Loaf with Maple Frosting

I used to consider pumpkin a holiday ingredient. I would wait until the fall months and then incorporate it into the menu. Then realized it was a shame to only use it during the cold weather months. This cake is dark, spicy and soothing anytime of year. It may even prompt you to make a jack o lantern.

I've had the great good fortune of living abroad for more than a decade. The traditions, comfort and memories of home are things I cherish and carry with me on my travels. What I wasn't expecting was that other cultures and flavors would seep into my own traditions and favorites and influence a new batch of classics. Heres to evolving traditions and new memories!
