Pumpkin- It is very versatile and easy to add to your diet in both sugar and savory dishes. It also adds taste and texture to the bread. Pumpkin is not just a vegetable. Its taste in the bread will addict you.
Sugar cookies- Besides its role as a sweetener, it also plays the role of coloring and bulking agent in this recipe. You can use a one-to-one substitution of honey for sugar in this bread. It is also a source of carbohydrates that makes energy at the onset of the day. If you love adding garlic cloves, I would recommend you to check my sugar cookies recipe too.
Butter- Encompass the recipe with a light and tender texture and causes your bread to rise.
Cloves- Cloves are pungent warm spices with intense flavor and aroma. It is used along with cinnamon and nutmeg in sweet dishes. They impart a good texture and taste to the recipe.
