This time of year I love a good PSL or pumpkins scone, but this recipe for mini pumpkin spice loaves is a no fuss and delicious treat I know your whole family will love! These mini pumpkin spice loaves have all the yummy fall spiciness you’d expect with a tasty cream cheese icing that’s totally optional but highly recommended! They’re super easy to make and perfect for breakfast, brunch or an after school snack. Some of my blogger friends are also sharing their favourite fall baking recipes today, so be sure to check them all out at the end of the post.
To ice or not to ice? These loaves are so moist and yummy, they are delicious all on their own. The cream cheese icing adds a sweet touch and if you’re not a fan, vanilla icing works great too!
