Wonderful treat!

I made this with my little girls and we all loved it. They loved getting to eat "Pumpkin" since we've had pumpkins around all fall.

I made this recipe last night, because I am diabetic, I used 1/4 cup of mollasses and 1/4 cup of splendar and 1/2 sugar instead of 1 cup of sugar, it tasted wonderful, we put butter on it and had it with hot coffee. Everyone in family loved it.

My husband is a VERY picky eater, and loves his desserts. He said this was one of the best! I agree. It was easy to make, and gone in a flash!

Wow! This made the house smell terrific! I doubled the batch and used small bread pans (5-3/4" x 3") and it made seven beautiful loaves. Baking time was approximately 30 minutes. Sliced them for a special treat with a spoonful of fresh whipped cream--heavenly!

This recipe was a cinch to make. It turned out to be such a lovely color too. My family loved it and its very good for you too. I think this is great planned around Thanksgiving dinner also. I will keep this one handy for sure.
