Pumpkin Bread

Oh this is my Momma’s recipe and it is soooooo yummy and super easy! She got the recipe way back when because it calls for margarine. Hello, who uses margarine? So, yes, it is changed up a bit, aren’t you happy?

Don’t you just love pumpkin in the fall?

The frosting you just add all ingredients together and smother on top of the bread. (I personally don’t add nuts to the bread its self but I put nuts in the frosting.

So dang good, a great gift too!
