Pumpkin Raisin Bread

Sick of pumpkin yet? Too bad. THIS is the bread that changed my mind about pumpkin. I’m slowly starting to like pumpkin, though I doubt I’ll ever be able to handle pumpkin pie! My co-worker Jackie brought this bread into the office and I had a piece – I fell in love. Immediately requested the recipe and had to have more! Thank you to Jackie for sharing this treat with me :)
