I made this bread to send to a friend of ours at Thanksgiving. It is wonderful! It tastes like pumpkin pie. This recipe goes into my favorite recipes file.

This is my favorite bread to make during the holidays. Once out of the oven I wrap foil over it until it cools off. It holds the moisture in and the edges don't get hard and crispy, then it's really easy to cut into thin slices. I also wrap finished loaves in foil and freeze them. Take them out the night before to defrost and again, it's easy to slice in the morning.

Easy and delicious. Sprinkle chopped pecans on top of batter before baking for a nutty touch.

I was looking for a recipe to use up the 1/2 can of pumpkin I had leftover from another recipe. I halved the ingredients in this one to make one loaf and it was delicious! Very moist without being heavy. I will definitely make this again.

This is the best pumpkin bread recipe I have made and I have made several. It is like biting into a piece of pumpkin pie. It is a phenominal recipe.
