Pumpkin Cinnamon Raisin Bread Roll ~ 南瓜肉桂葡萄干面包

This is a yummy moist bread loaded with raisins with a tinge of cinnamon.   Great to have it plain, or toasted and laced with a light smear of butter.  I freezed some and had it after a few days.  It tasted just as fresh, eaten at room temperature.  Definitely a keeper recipe!
