 I am not a fan of the Pumpkin Loaf, I always found it to be kind of dry and tasteless. But if Pumpkins your type of dessert then im well for it. Everybody loves the way this loaf comes out when its first baked it is very soft to the touch.... I found it to be very much like a Pound Cake but less desirable and more like Thanksgiving... If anybody feels the same way I do leave a comment I know im not the only person who isn't so crazed about Pumpkins Dessert.... I'm not even a big fan of Pumpkin Pie, Yessss I know that sounds crazy but its true.... Im not Pumpkin just isnt my choice of taste....
