Every Thanksgiving, my mother made her mother's famous almond pumpkin bread. From the aroma and the exquisite taste of this mouthwatering treat, I always gobble it down in one bite. This bread can be devoured during lunch or breakfast, as a dessert and even a snack, and is enjoyed by every one in my family.
