    lovely moist loaf. I made a half batch, which produced a high loaf. I would not change a thing

    This is my go-to pumpkin bread recipe. I have made this bread many times for holiday gift-giving. It freezes beautifully.

    Absolutely delicious! I did increase the amount of cinnamon and nutmeg. Also melted butter instead of butter flavoring. Be sure to use Buttermilk! It makes the difference - sooo much better!
