Very nice bread. I omitted the raisins and the glaze to make it more like a traditional pumpkin bread. Also added 1/2 tsp. of ginger. Otherwise, I made it by the recipe, and the texture was perfect--not too gummy, not too coarse. Spiced just right, too--fragrant, but not overpowering. Remember to bake at 325 if you're using glass pans, otherwise it comes out with the crust overdone.
SUPERB pumpkin bread.. Ease in preparation, the smell while baking.. well it woke the hubby up and brought him downstairs.. but my favorite part of the deal, it made two very nice loaves... try it, you will not be let down.. thanks suel.
