A definite 5 star recipe! First, it was absolutely delicious; second, very healthy and nutritious, unlike some other dense and chewy healthy bread, this pumpkin bread was moist and flavorful. The cinnamon sugar was swirled into bread to form into a swirled bread, which not only made the bread looks beautiful, but also added the great flavor. The aroma from the oven during the baking lasted about days in our house. Also they can be great gift as well. A keeper!
