I’ve recently tried several pumpkin bread recipes. This is the one my wife and daughter like the best so it’s the one I’m saving here. Here, by the way, seems to be turning into my recipe folder. A search, a review of results, and that’s enough.
Anyway, this is almost too sweet for me — almost a cake more than a bread. A dense, moist cake.
Pans: 2x standard loaf pans, lightly greased.
CREAM: 1 c Butter, 3 c sugar.
