Here’s a variation of the ever-popular pumpkin bread. This version contains dates, walnuts, and All-Bran cereal, and those ingredients elevate this bread to luscious. Although it's good as is, it's even better spread with a little slightly sweetened whipped cream cheese.
If dates aren’t available, raisins can be substituted. This easy bread can also be baked as a cake in a 9 x 13” cake pan and frosted with Vanilla Buttercream vanilla or Cream Cheese Frosting cream for a change; it can also be baked in a tube pan and drizzled with a simple Vanilla Glaze
