As with many other recipe I make during PAC, I was gonna cut this in half, but then decided to make the extra loaf & gift it to a friend who's always helping me track down unusual ingredients! That said, I was extremely pleased with the taste of this bread, what with the whole wheat flour, the unrefined sugar AND the currents (thought about substituting raisins here, then didn't)! Absolutely loved this nutty, whole grain pumpkin bread, & will be keeping the recipe around for future use! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current round of Pick A Chef]
