The pumpkin bread was taste tested by the Circles team and was well received.  The majority of the taste testers said it was very moist, delicious, flavorful, and had a pumpkin pie like quality. It was also suggested to add nuts, dates,raisins, or pumpkin seeds.  The team felt it was very easy to bake and would like to make it again soon!
