Holly's Notes:
The original recipe came from The Amish Family Cookbook.  I had just put up several batches of pumpkin puree and my husband asked for some pumpkin bread to take to his Home Teaching families for church.  I figured I'd try a new recipe since I really don't have a tried or true pumpkin bread recipe.  I searched several cookbooks before finding this recipe.  It came together easily and smelled absolutely divine while it was baking.  It was delicious, although the second time I made it, I did a 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup oil instead of the original 1 cup of oil and I doubled the spices and I did muffins instead.  We prefer the muffins to the bread and the doubled spices was perfect.  This version of the recipe reflects those changes.
