Nana McGreal's Pumpkin Bread

We just returned from Boston for Thanksgiving. 

Imagine our delight when my Nana's Pumpkin Bread recipe was served by Aunt Elena.  I had no idea Nana had a pumpkin bread recipe.  My son Jay loooooovvves just about anything pumpkin. Well, so do most all of us.

And then we went to dinner at lifetime friends' Annette & Phil's house.  Annette not only made Pumpkin Bread too but it was the same recipe!!!!! NANA'S!! (Annette grew up next door to my Nana.)

So here for your pleasure, is my Nana's Pumpkin Bread recipe, brought to you by Aunt Elena and my friend Annette.  Thank you for preserving this family treat ladies!
