    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This is my favorite pumpkin bread recipe. It is very different from other pumpkin breads because it calls for some unusual ingredients that make it special. I almost always use freshly cooked and mashed pumpkin in this - I like to use a small pie pumpkin, which I cut into quarters, seed, and steam until tender, then remove the peel and mash. But I have used plain canned pumpkin as well - just don't accidentally use pumpkin pie filling - you need the plain puree. Prep time assumes you already have some pumpkin puree handy. The extra loaf freezes well. I have been making this for years, but originally found this in one of the "Best of the Best" series of US regional cookbooks.

      Excellent flavor and texture. I added about 1/4 tsp cloves and baked in mini pans. I got 5 loaves and they took 45 minutes to bake. I will be making this again!

      This bread has a very unique texture...kind of between cake and quick bread. It turned out very moist and tasty. I only had vanilla pudding, so that's what I used and it still was very good. Can't wait to try it with the flavors listed and maybe add some nuts. P.S. My bake time was about 65 minutes and I used canned pumpkin. Thanks for sharing!!
