    Caryn's Note:

    My mother has made this pumpkin bread recipe each year around Thanksgiving since I was a little girl. I often make loaves and give as gifts to friends and teachers. This bread is very moist and dense with a lovely spiced pumpkin flavor.

      Excellent pumpkin bread. I scaled the recipe down and made only one loaf, but now I wished I made the whole recipe! I used butter instead of shortening, but otherwise followed to a "T". Loved the texture and the flavor...thanks for sharing! P.S. I needed about 60 minutes bake time.

      Fanstastic!! Great flavor and texture, my family loved it, it froze like a charm. This is going in our family favorites binder. I added raisins to 1 loaf, since my husband doesn't like nuts. Next time I'm going to try addding chocolate chips in one loaf, or an orange glaze on top of another - there's a lot you can do with this recipe - thanks for posting it!

      Great recipe for gifts since it makes 3 loaves at a time (I have a lot of in-laws!). Very moist and a lovely smell of autumn spices. I used two teaspoons of vanilla and added a cup of raisins.
