Pumpkin Corn Bread Recipe

Two of my favorite harvest time crops are pumpkins and corn.  Corn bread is a popular in the colder weather in our house and is a wonderful addition to a meal of chili, a hearty soup or even an omelet.  We often have corn bread and fresh fruit for breakfast as well.  This Pumpkin Corn Bread recipe is very versatile because you can substitute any variety of mashed winter squash for the pumpkin if you’d rather.   I found this Pumpkin Corn Bread recipe in The Old Farmer’s Almanac Everyday Baking Cookbook.
