Dana's notes for this recipe:
I remember every Fall when my grandmother would make the most amazing breads. Pumpkin was one of her favorites and mine also. This recipe is made with fresh pumpkin puree and not the can. This recipe makes 3 loafs of pumpkin bread which allows you to share with your friends and family or just keep all to yourself!

Doesn't the title of this recipe alone make you hungry?! Yum! The flavors of pumpkin and maple are an amazing blend... particularly when coupled with creamy cream cheese. What a winner!

My grandmother would change up the extract "when the mood hit her" she was such a wonderful and fun person. I like the maple but she used vanilla and almond too.

This looks like similar flavors to pumpkin roll without all the hassle of baking, rolling etc. I don't have good luck with those and this recipe would be a great alternative.

I've never made them probably because they seem a little intimidating and I honestly don't remember my grandmother ever making them and she baked a lot. She loved putting fillings in stuff. Maybe she was intimidated by them too but I would never have been able to say that to her!!!! Yikes!
