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!
