“This recipe is simple and delicious, and it makes a loaf bread that is really a cake. Omit one of the cups of sugar and it tastes less sweet, more like a muffin, which is how I prefer it. It comes from "Old Fashioned Bread Recipes with Historical Notes" (1987) by J.S. Collester. Anything with pumpkin is perfect for the holiday season.”
