Sweet Melissa Sunday - Sweet Potato Bread (Pumpkin) with Cinnamon-Rum-Orange Glaze

Sweet Potato Bread with Cinnamon-Rum-Orange Glaze was chosen by Lorelei of Mermaid Sweets for Sweet Melissa Sunday. The only change I made to this delicious recipe is change out the sweet potato for pumpkin. I am "still" using up pumpkin puree.

The cinnamon-rum-orange glaze added a wonderful sheen to the bundt cake. I would also like to add that I am writing this late Saturday evening because in the morning I will be at my VERY FIRST biking event: The Daffodil 35th Annual Biking Classic, sponsored by the Tacoma Wheelman Bicycle Club. I am volunteering from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. then riding the 60 mile loop and hoping to bike it in one piece. This will be my longest bike ride yet, in my 2 weeks of bike riding. The SMS baking treat will be shared among my new friends in the bicycling world and I know they will enjoy this bread as much as I did. Very moist and flavorful. I did add a little extra cinnamon and nutmeg but not by much and the spices definitely showed their presence in the sweet bread. Please check out our other Sweet Melissa Sunday bakers to see how each baker added a little different artistic edge to this delicious recipe! Thank you Lorelei for a wonderful choice! Happy Baking Everyone!
