Recipe by cook from scratch

I got this recipe from the first cookbook I ever purchased through a fundraiser for my church youth group. This is still one of favorite cookbooks and my most requested recipe.

Great tasting easy to make pumpkin bread! It is very moist and fast to make! I halved the recipe. Per personal tastes I think I would put a little extra spice next time. I also did need to cook about 20 extra minutes but it's probably because my loaf pans are a little large. Very tasty though can't wait for DH to get home and have some! Made for PAC Orphanage Spring 08
