Introduction

This is a five-star-rated pumpkin loaf recipe that I modified to be only "half a cheat" by cutting the fat and sugar in half and using half whole wheat flour. It is still very sweet; the sugar could be reduced even more. My family cannot tell that this is a healthier version of the recipe. Makes 2 large loafs.
