Delicious pumpkin bread / loaf that uses half oil and half apple sauce. This is one of those recipes you definitely need in your recipe box!
Now it’s time to get on to a Pumpkin Loaf, or bread, because what kind of Pumpkin Week would it be if I didn’t have a great pumpkin loaf as well? This recipe makes two loaves, which was perfect for my picky-pants husband, one was plain and the other was loaded with raisins and nuts for us normal people who like it that way.
Now, there is a reason why the picture of the bread only shows the plain one. The one with raisins and nuts was gobbled up. That’s the only word for it; gobbled. It came out of the oven, and by the time my Dad (whom I made this for in the first place, he loves his raisins and nuts) my brother, myself and my two kids attacked it, there were only crumbs remaining. My picky husband had the plain one, and though he can usually put paid to a baked loaf pretty well, there was enough to take a feature picture of.
