Delicious with a cup of tea or coffee. A co-worker brought this bread to work and I begged her for the recipe.

This is truly a wonderful tasting bread. I substituted 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of white and it turned out moist and delicious. This reminds me more of Boston brown bread than pumpkin bread. Thanks for posting!
