While stationed in Edzell, Scotland, the Doctor's wife made loaves of this and brought one to me. She graciously gave me her recipe. I have since changed bits here and there and added more seasonings that I like till this is the recipe I love. Every time I eat Pumpkin bread, I think of that lady and her generosity of spirit for a young sailor whose mother had just died and who was away from home an alone for the very first time.
