Cindy's Pumpkin Bread

Fredda Rosenbaum


Once I tried my best friend's pumpkin bread I had to have her recipe! Its moist, smooth texture makes it the best ever. In addition, it is even better the day after baking. Freshly grated nutmeg is required to get the full flavor for this recipe. Slice and warm for the best breakfast ever.
