There are quite a few recipes out there for pumpkin bread but this is the one I have used for over 15 years. It is just a little bit different from all the others, but quite moist and full of spicey flavor. I love it just plain but you can dress it up for guests - slice bread thinly, spread with a mixture of softened cream cheese & orange mrmalade, then put another thin slice on top. Cut each "sandwich" in half and serve. Very delicious! I also use this recipe to make "mini" loaves for gift baskets. For small loaf pans, fill each about 2/3 full before baking and adjust your baking time.
