Personal Notes:
This is the best pumpkin bread I have ever tasted. It was a family favorite.

My father-in-law "Pops", would make each of us a loaf or two every winter. It was not hard for us to convince him to make extra and we would freeze them ... putting them away for later.

Timmy and Tim both loved them warmed with a bit of butter for breakfast. If you try this recipe, I hope it becomes a favorite of your family, too.
