Pumpkin Bread

This is my all-time-favorite fall treat. Pumpkin bread. I remember my Mom making it when I was younger and I would eat it for breakfast or for snack when I got home from school. I would spread a little Country Crock (b/c that is what my Mom bought) on it and chow down. YUM! I have now modified the recipe that my Mom used to be gluten-free. I am in heaven! I even “gifted” some to a neighbor today for helping me out and she loved it! :) BTW, she isn’t GF and didn’t realize the bread was GF until I told her. I froze the remaining 1.5 loaves so that I wouldn’t eat them in one sitting, b/c I could easily do so. I plan on sharing with my Mom when she is here this coming weekend to visit. I am thinking about topping it with Edy’s Slow-Churned Pumpkin Ice Cream and maybe some Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup. Oooooooh!
