"A friend made this moist bread for us years ago," recalls Anne Smithson, Cary, North Carolina. "Because it makes three loaves, I can give one loaf to a neighbor, enjoy one with my family and freeze one for later."

"Loved this recipe but made the following changes: Replaced 1/2 cup of oil with 1/2 cup Apple Butter; added 1/2 cup Craisins. I do this with almost every pumpkin bread recipe I make and it always turns out moist and spicey."
