Pumpkin Walnut Bread

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


A wonderful pumpkin bread, with spices, raisins, and chopped walnuts. This is a good quick bread to bake and freeze for later. Freeze individual slices and take them out for holiday guests.

Very Good!, Member Renee717

The pumpkin bread was easy to put together, no oil. I added a little extra sugar. It was moist and delicious!
