we can't get canned pumpkin here, would ordinary mashed pumpkin do? also, what do you serve this with? Peggy - you must be the Queen of Halloween!!!

you can use mashed pumpkin or even sweet potatoes. I love spreading a slice with butter while bread is still hot and eating it with a nice cup of hot tea. Its like banana bread so more of a sweet bread for dessert or snack.
