I got this recipe from my good friend Rosie over 40 years ago. I make it year round - not just during the holidays. My five year old grandson loves it! He walked in the house after I had baked it one morning, said "I smell something, and his face lit up as he said "Pumpkin Bread"! It is super moist!
