Pumpkin Bread

This is from my sister Janae, she is an awesome cook and always has the best recipes to share.
Thanks Janae, I can't wait to make it!

So October is here and I have been craving some really good pumpkin bread. I love fall and when it finally cools down. It was actually cold this morning. So I was searching on the internet and found the recipe. I turned out so moist and yummy I had to share it. last year we cooked down our pumpkin and put it in the freezer. So I used fresh pumpkin(sort of).
The instant coconut cream pudding gave it a yummy flavor too. I made mini loaves to give as a fall gift with a ribbon and a cute tag tied to it.
