Pumpkin Fudge 'OMG!' Bread
The OMG is what you'll be saying when you bite into - nay - sink into this addicting dessert bread. Contains all the scrumptiousness of an exclusively autumn dessert, yet satisfies the everyday desire of all that is chocolaty and filling. Sprinkle more nuts on top of batter before baking if desired.
