Pumpkin Butter Tea Cakes with Orange Glaze
These little loaves have a light and springy crumb because there's no butter or oil in the recipe. The pumpkin flavor and warm fall spices are made more decadent with an orange glaze, but feel free to omit it for a light breakfast sweet.
Note: Pumpkin butters typically come spiced and sweetened and thus will vary by brand. I used Williams Sonoma's version, which is well spiced, medium sweet, and light in texture, though it tastes as much of pumpkin as of spices. If you're using a different brand, taste for sweetness and spices and adjust the spices here accordingly.
