Each year, when September rolls around, despite what the weather is outside, I am ready for all things pumpkin. My favorite autumn treat used to be Starbucks' Pumpkin Loaf. Back when I would have to commute to Manhattan each morning for school and work, I would order one for breakfast to go with my grande cup of PSL.

As much as I cherished these pumpkin-filled mornings, this was also when I started to realize I would react to my seasonal favorite. After getting an updated food allergy testing, that is when we discovered my allergy to Nutmeg.

Being someone who loves autumn, and all the pumpkin and pumpkin spice treats that come with the season, I am very limited on what I can buy in-store due to my nutmeg allergy. Since I cannot rely on purchased goods, I turn to the solution of making my own goodies!

My allergy-friendly pumpkin bread is not only moist and flavorful, but it also caters to the common allergy restrictions: no gluten, no dairy, no corn, and NO NUTMEG!!

When October rolls around, you can bake the batter for the loaf in this Haunted Skill Cakelet Pan. This is such a perfect option for the Halloween season!
