YUM-O!! This is my first attempt at Pumpkin Bread...my Mom's recipe!! I always think my Mom's pumpkin bread is so yummy and I just love to eat it!! So, after eating a whole mini loaf myself (Aaron doesn't like it, can you believe it???) I decided to get the recipe and attempt it myself. Here are the results!! And let me tell you...it got rave reviews! I took the large loaf to work so I wouldn't eat it all and now everyone wants the recipe! I'll save you all the time and give it to you now. Just an added side note: This recipe is an excerpt from a local newspaper...published in 1973! When I asked my Mom for the recipe she handed me the whole yellowed excerpt...pretty cool!
