When my son was in "Delightful Day" pre-school (he's 14 now) they had a Thanksgiving Day Feast. They served this recipe. However, instead of baking it into loaves they made mini muffins.To date, this is by far the best pumpkin bread/muffin I have ever had. Very easy to make and soooo moist! Such a pleasure to pass this along to everyone at this wonderful site! Enjoy! PS - This freezes great! Get a jump on holiday cooking!

  11. Adjust cooking time as necessary.
  12. Tip: I've found that baking in"dark" aluminum pans tends to burn easily on outside.

Simply awesome! I do not like Pumpkin Anything! But this...This was heaven. I made a loaf and only had the one pan so I made muffins. I left out the raisins, i did not have any, and I made double vanilla butter cream frosting. The kids ate it all up as did us grown ups and a couple guests. You must try it!

I have been using this site and another for about 4 years now. It took this recipe to finally make me join so I can rate! This is THE BEST, most moist pumpkin bread I have ever had! Sometimes I find the hype around a recipe sets one up for disaster, but not this recipe in any way. Thank you so much for taking the time to post this recipe. I loved it, just as is.

this really is the best pumpkin bread i've EVER tasted. it was easy to make and set up just wonderfully. i omitted the raisins and nuts and replaced them with chocolate chips instead. i made these for a party and they were a major hit with all the guests. thanks!
