An enticing aroma wafts through my house when this tender cake-like pumpkin bread is in the oven. I bake extra loaves to give as holiday gifts. My friends wait eagerly for it every year. —Linda Burnett, Prescott, Arizona

MY REVIEW

"Try this recipe. You won't be sorry. Quick, easy and delicious. Added a couple of handfuls of raisins this time. Thought they may sink to the bottom because the batter is so cakelike, but they didn't. I still prefer it plain."

MY REVIEW

"I have this recipe almost memorized. Whenever I make it for a brunch or occasion I have to bake 2. My family wants to have theirs and I never bring home leftovers. Very simple, moist, and delicious. I love it."

MY REVIEW

"I followed the recipe to a "T" and this was the worst pumpkin bread I've ever tasted. It smelled weird in the oven and tasted exactly how it smelled and left a terrible after taste. My husband liked it though. I now have my usual pumpkin bread baking...it smells wonderful."
