I've never had or made pumpkin bread before so I was taking a chance, but this season I seem to be in a pumpkin mood, and this recipe caught my eye, first because it seemed so easy with simple and readily available ingredients, and secondly because of the good amount of spices it called for and it didn't call for rainsins or nuts. I needed something special to bring to a bake sale fundraiser for our local library. I got up early this morning, and sleepy-eyed put this together and doubled the recipe. It wasn't until I went to put the batter in the pan that I realized that the original recipe made two loaves. What a serindipitous oversight! The house was redolent with the heady aroma of spices and pumpkin. My car two smelled divine from the two still hot loaves I was taking to the bake table. A gentleman eyed my offerings somewhat suspiciously and demanded to know if there were any nuts in the bread. I assured him there were none, and just about that time a slight breeze carried and lifted the aroma to the air. The bread did not even hit the table! The gentleman gave me a huge smile, and then the loaves were gone, just like that! They didn't even hit the bake table. I came home sliced into one of the loaves I saved for myself, shared a bite with my sweetie (who doesn't like a broad range of foods), who said "I hope those two loaves are for us, because I can tell you right now, they're not going to last long around me!" What more can I say? Wonderful!
