Pumpkin Gingerbread

Maria Kenner


My daughter in law is a pumpkin fanatic so I am always on the lookout for pumpkin recipes.I found a recipe that was supposed to be for pumpkin gingerbread on the web but it didn't even call for molasses so I decided to come up with my own. Came out perfectly and is so delicious!
