For a while, I was convinced that vegan was just latin for cardboard, but it is cupcakes like these that keep me coming back for. One of my absolute favorite baked goods from Colby, this pumpkin bread instantly reminds me of fall.
The original recipe recommends baking the bread in loaves but I adjusted the recipe slightly so it works for muffin tins in order to make it easier to share.
Foss's Vegan Pumpkin (Cup) Cake
