NotesBack in the '70's when I was still in high school, my sister's neighbor swore me to secrecy when he gave me this recipe for pumpkin bread. It was, and still is, the best pumpkin bread I have ever had. We baked it in coffee cans back then and I still do now, but occasionally I will bake it in mini-loaf pans as well. I have since seen similar recipes on the Internet, so I guess the cat is out of the bag...
