There are a lot of pumpkin bread recipes out there but I have never found one better than this. It is just plain pumpkin bread, no raisins or nuts but we've been making it this way for ever in my family and my nephew would'nt have it any other way. I personally love this bread after it has set a day or two for breakfast with a little whipped cream cheese. Oh, and this freezes perfectly so you can make it ahead for the holidays. I also have made this in regular 8 inch loaf pans, mini pans,1 large bundt pan and even in mini bundt pans. I don't think it can be messed up, unless you use cooking spray instead of greasing and flouring the pans, this makes a huge difference in the outside texture of the bread. The cooking spray tends to make the bread have a crispiness on the outside that is not good.
