Picky hubby has quick breads on his long list of dislikes, but my children adore pumpkin bread. I had two small loaves in the freezer and I retrieved them for Nick’s finals week. I know, I know, a high protein breakfast would have been better brain food, but this made my sophomore smile…a hard thing to do with all those tests looming. This recipe came from Severa Vandergaast…our Dutch neighbor growing up who talked a mile a minute with a charming accent. A loaf of this spicy deliciousness would arrive each Christmas as a gift for our family.
