While in 5th grade, Sister Dorothy brought a bunch of students to the convent next door to whip up some pumpkin bread for a bake sale. Boy were we all psyched to get inside the fortress that was the convent. And we were shocked to find that those nuns were living it up a lot more than we thought. What a complete shock to find out that they had LIQUOR in there! Scandalous. They had the most gigantic pantry anyone could imagine and the place was decked out with professional appliances. But I guess when you are cooking for a huge crew daily, you need to run your kitchen like it's a restaurant. This recipe was phenomenal and I have been making it, to rave reviews, for a good number of years now. This is sort of a quick bread, but not too dense, which makes it a bit more like a cake. I love to eat this spread with some real butter. Mmmmmm.
