Top Review by Sydney Mike

Great tasting pumpkin bread no matter what time of year, & although I was tempted to add a handful of raisins or dried cranberries, I didn't, at least not this first time around! Another time, though, I might just substitute a bit of applesauce for some of the vegetable oil ~ Still thinking about that one! However it's done, this pumpkin bread is wonderfully delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
