Sweet bread has always been my weakness. Give me a freshly baked loaf and I can polish it off in no-time. There isn’t a banana nut bread or cranberry bread that is safe in my presence! LOL
When my friend, Rebecca, brought a pumpkin raisin walnut bread to to share in the office, I thought I’d gone to “sweet bread heaven!” Never had I tasted such a wonderful bread. She gave me the recipe and now I share it with you.
This recipe can be made as one big loaf or as several mini-loaves. Enjoy a nice thick slice with a glass of milk or, my favorite, a hot cup of coffee! I like the mini-loaves. The smaller slices look so nice on a serving platter but, then again, who ever gets them to the platter? Tee hee hee.
