Betty Cooks - Pumpkin Bread

It is that time of year when Pumpkins, squashes, and gourds are in abundance! I love the festive looks of these and to me they mean fall and holidays! I have to tell you that I absolutely detest pumpkin pie and the thought of it makes me gag! BUT I love Pumpkin Bread and other cakes cooked with pumpkin! Doesn't make sense to me.
