Bakin'Momma K's Famous Pumpkin Bread

Elizabeth T-D Komins

By

I call this my "famous" Pumpkin Bread because, in the over the 30 years I've made it, people have raved about it. Friends, family, neighbors and teachers requested it over and over. ~ When my, now, adult daughter's were in elementary school, they would get very excited in the Fall when they got off the bus and smelled it baking at the end of our driveway!
~ So, it became "famous" as I made it for holiday gifts for teachers and bus drivers, bake sales and any one we gave gifts to. ~ To this day, it's not "really Autumn" in our house until I make the first loaf!
