Smells like home-made

I love quick breads, and this is a great one to make with pumpkin! I use extra nuts.The nuts sprinkled over the top gives the loaf a beautiful appearance and a nice taste sensation. I like this recipe because it makes two loaves. One to eat and one for the freezer, or to send home with someone. I've even used half to make a pan of muffins. (remember to take them out of the oven after 15-20 min. and let the loaf continue to bake) When the kitchen is filled with the aroma of bread baking, no one can wait for the loaf to cool, so the muffins disappear!

I love this Recipe

I usually omit the nuts when I take this to a pitch in, and I make Orange Butter or Pineapple Butter to go with it. I have used it many times and it is always a crowd pleaser.

Best Pumpkin Bread

by c. cindy , NICHOLASVILLE, KY on Sep. 2008

This pumpkin bread is absolutely hands down the best Pumpkin Bread recipe you can make! Flavorful, moist, spicy, nutty...this has it all. I make it every Fall and take it to neighbors, friends and my husband's co-workers. They rave about it and have come to look forward to my making this every season. I am known around here in the Fall as the Pumpkin Bread Lady, and everyone smiles when they see me coming!
