Pumpkin Tea Bread

Submitted by: CONSISTENCY11

Introduction

A lovely, higher calorie bread. Though higher calorie per 10 servings, it provides lots of healthy fat if you use olive oil based margarine. Very filling! I got it from a Jean Pare cookbook, so I didn't make this up myself. I substituted lemon for the orange and it turned out beautifully. Also, this recipe does not include added nuts.
