Pumpkin Breads

I'm presenting two recipes of pumpkin bread. Both I have sold at a church bake sale and both I've made numerous times for friends. The recipes came from one cookbook, America's Country Inn Cookbook. The first recipe is from the John Hancock Inn at Hancock, New Hampshire. The second recipe comes from the Fitzwilliam Inn also in New Hampshire. You end up with two large loaves per recipe and these freeze well so you can go ahead and eat one and save the rest for later. They also make good gifts especially during this time of the year.
