With its mixture of ground flaxseed and almonds, this moist, tart-but-sweet pumpkin bread makes a nutritious and filling breakfast. It can also become a tasty dessert if it’s topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of honey.
If you’d like to give a gift loaf to a friend, mix 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar with a dash of vanilla extract and little bit of milk or water (just enough to make a thick liquid) to make a quick decorative icing. Let the icing drip off of a spoon and go back and forth over the loaf to make a zig-zag pattern.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9×5 loaf pan; set aside.
