My mom has a cookbook that my aunt bought her from a church social back in the 70's. This pumpkin bread recipe is from that cookbook with some changes my mom has made thru the years. A very easy to make and moist, wonderful bread that my mom makes in loaf pans, tart pans, or her bundt pan. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Wow! These are great muffins. I divided the recipe by 3, and it made 9 muffins. I used only 1 egg for the 1/3 batch, and put a tad extra pumpkin in to make up for the 1/3 egg that was missing. I baked these is a muffin tin sprayed with cooking spray and without paper liners. I baked them for 21 minutes at 350 degrees, and let them cook for a bit in the muffin pan before removing them. This is definitely going into my 10 star cookbook!

I love this recipe! Always a hit...I divide it in half and make 12 muffins and a mini-loaf. They are delicious with blueberries, cranberries, &/or raisins. This just adds to how moist and sweet they are. Definitely make sure to either use cupcake liners or grease with butter And dust with flour. I used just butter and they stuck to the pan.
