Love this bread! It came out beautiful and delicious. The butternut squash made the bread super moist and added the aroma. Chocolate chips and walnuts let us even enjoy more on every single bite, and the glaze not only just gave the extra sweetness, but also made the bread look absolutely beautiful and attractive. Definitely strongly recommend this recipe to everybody who loves pumpkin bread :)
