Big Batch Pumpkin Bread With Flavored Butter Variations

I found this in an old cookbook my mom gave me. It has worked for me every time I have made it, and it makes 3 loaves at a time, so it is the recipe I have stuck with. I make lots of pumpkin bread in the fall, but I give most of it away. This freezes well, it's great for gifts. This also smells heavenly when it is baking. The flavored butters are great on the warm bread.

I made this without the butters. The house still smelss great, and I have 3 big loaves of pumpking bread to share. The spice combo is perfect, exactly like pumpkin pie and it is a very economical recipe to make given that it only uses one can of pumpkin for the 3 loaves. I had to do a lot of baking, and this recipe gives a lot of results, and is no more difficult than making one loaf. A keeper!!
