I found this recipe in a magazine a looong time ago. Brother Boniface is/was a 90 yeara old monk that still baked every day for the monastery. It is wonderful pumpkin bread!

I made this to take to family's for Thanksgiving visit. I added mini choc chips, splitting quantity with nuts. Mine took a longer time to bake than indicated, even sinking in the center after I took out, prompting a quick return to the oven. My oven may be calibrated low, but it was the only unexpected thing that happened. Once fully baked, the loaves were delicious, gobbled up by family and houseguests alike. Great pumpkin spice flavor and texture. I'll make again!!

This is going in my holiday book!!! What a great recipe! Flavorful but not overpowering. Very moist- a hit with my whole office. This makes 2 loaves, but only 1 made it past the first day.
