Pumpkin Bread

So I never got to experience the joy of knowing my fathers mom, Grandma Reba.

But, I do get the honor of spending time with my Great Aunt, her sister. Every Christmas and Thanksgiving my Dad talks about how much he misses his Mothers pumpkin bread. Now that I can kinda sorta throw a few ingredients together and serve something edible, I figured why can’t I make this famous pumkin bread?

Enter a very old cookbook from the women at my Grandmothers and Great Aunts church. This is my Great Aunts recipe, but I trust my Grandma Reba used it as well.

As you can see, it has a bit of age. But boy can these women bang some pans! I trust them and their recipes completely. So last Thanksgiving I surprised my Dad with 3 loaves of this bread, and it was gone quick!

The recipes are simple and to the point. So, before it gets too warm for baking, give this delicious old recipe a try. I’m sure Grandma Reba wouldn’t mind.

I’ll also type it out for y’all just in case! Let me know how you like it!
