Review This Recipe
I wanted something besides the traditional pumpkin bread to give as little gifts at Christmas, so thought I'd give this a try. It is very good. I followed the cooking time on the recipe and the bread came out perfect. I froze them without the glaze, but of course, had to cut one loaf up to taste-test. I'm a chocoholic and I think the glaze will be wonderful as it was not as sweet as I usually prefer. But, for those that don't care for the sticky sweet taste, sans the glaze is very good.
