This recipe takes the traditional pumpkin bread and adds a twist to it. A sweet and lightly spiced pumpkin dough is fried in lard until puffy and cooked through. It's delicious with butter, syrup or a light dusting of icing sugar. Serve for breakfast, brunch or dessert.

as soon as i take this out of the pan, i lay into a mixture of cinnamon and sugar (to taste) to give it that sugared looked like a doughnut. very tasty treat. - 11 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I believe we need to add Double Acting Baking Powder to this recipe....2T Baking powder. Usually when making basic Fry Bread recipe it only requires the baking powder. When using Baking Soda you wouid need to almost immediately cook the item or it will lose the gases needed to make the bread puffy. Yes you can use both the Baking Soda and Baking Powder for better leavening action. Also you can add to recipe some Allspice and Ginger for pumpkin spice flavor. - 08 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
